Weekend Reading List

From art under apartheid to a new novel from Walt Whitman: what to read this weekend

Walt Whitman

Walt Whitman

  • Walt Whitman has just delivered a new novel … 165 years since his last one.

  • The immediate answer would seem to be no; is Steve Bannon the heir to Plato?

  • The 24-year-old student who confronted Martin Heidegger about his fascist sympathies and went on to be one of Europe’s most important thinkers.

  • An appropriate response to the absurdity of current affairs – the politics of surrealism.

  • Even Andy Warhol might blush: a new article on frieze.com explores the perils of arts branding.

  • Art as recuperative practice: how apartheid shaped arts education in South Africa.

  • Too clever for anyone's good: the sinister implications of intelligence.

  • Daily reviews: from Hamburg, London, Los Angeles and Naples on frieze.com

Paul Clinton is a writer and is lecturer in curating at Goldsmiths, London. His book Other Hunting will be published by Ma Bibliotheque in January 2019.
