ARTPIL / Prescription .054
Honeymoon in Helsinki

 

Conservatives in Spain are looking to rebrand themselves after losing power. Israel declares the right to self-determination to be unique to the Jewish people in its newly proclaimed Nation-State. Zimbabwe gears up for their national election later this month. Various countries try to introduce “value tests” for immigrants that most of their respective citizens would fail. Trump and Putin are still spooning after their honeymoon in Helsinki.

Welcome to the .054th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.
