‘“Disruption” has been the ambivalent watchword of the 2010s, which has been a decade of grappling with profound societal, political and economic change.’ – Amy Sherlock

The January/February issue of frieze looks at some of the most significant cultural shifts of the past decade through the public figures, technologies and companies that have embodied them. We lead with a feature on Hans Haacke, whose retrospective at the New Museum is a reminder that the current scrutiny of museum ethics is long overdue, and an essay on the art world’s addiction to flying, asking why, in a time of climate crisis, we all still do it.  Plus, we profile five young artists to watch for 2020: Jamie Crewe, Lauren Halsey, Rodrigo Hernández, Thảo-Nguyên Phan and Sung Tieu.

Plus, 36 reviews from around the world, including Mark Leckey at Tate Britain, London, and three shows responding to Berlin’s urban crisis. And answering our questionnaire is award-winning French writer Annie Ernaux.
