ARTPIL / Prescription .065
Ecce isti de longe...

 

Welcome to the .065th edition of Prescriptions. Lot’s going on in the world since the start of fall:

Italy’s far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini files a defamation suit against writer Roberto Saviano, a staunch critic of Salvini’s policies.

Marine Le Pen, head of France’s re-branded National Front/Rally is ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluation.

Trump has an Emperor’s New Clothes moment as diplomats break out laughing when he mistakes the United Nations assembly for a book club reading of Nietzsche’s Ecce Homo.

The U.S. Senate is about to roll out the red carpet for nominee Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court despite claims of the candidate’s history of predatory behavior – a perverse evolutionary turn in the checks and balances as the Legislative Branch becomes the rank and file of the Executive, and Judiciary member selections resemble a season finale of some reality show produced by the White House.

In other news, Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad are co-recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize for their fight against sexual violence.

Here is our look back on the week in the arts.

Liliana Porter

Other Situations / Liliana Porter

Alejandro Cesarco

Influenced by contemporary theory, these works investigate writing as a model and basis for artistic production, the composition of new texts as well as appropriation of already existing documents. On view through November 4, 2018 at Bielefelder Kunstverein.
