Frieze – Issue 214

October 2020

‘I’m increasingly interested in those possibilities outside and beyond the solely human.’

– John Akomfrah

In the October issue of frieze, the ground-breaking UK filmmaker John Akomfrah is in conversation with The Otolith Group’s Kodwo Eshun and Anjalika Sagar; Akinbode Akinbiyi, Natasha A. Kelly, Mahret Ifeoma Kupka and Susan Neimandraw attention to the history of Afro-Germany; and Willem de Rooij answers our questionnaire. Our Skin Is a Monument I (2020), the artwork which is the cover for this issue, is also available to purchase as an exclusive limited edition.

‘The main thing is the courage that it takes on our part to embrace the unthought – a courage that is not acknowledged enough.’ At the end of the summer, the filmmakers and friends John Akomfrah and The Otolith Group’s Kodwo Eshun and Anjalika Sagar met over Zoom for a wide-ranging conversation on contemporary cinema and decentring the human.

Roundtable: Black Deutschland

‘The idea that culture only belongs to a particular tribe denies the value and power of culture itself.’ In light of the global push for racial equality and justice, Akinbode Akinbiyi, Natasha A. Kelly, Mahret Ifeoma Kupka and Susan Neiman examine the overlooked history of Afro-Germany and what we can learn from it.

Also featuring:

A thematic essay by Stephen Squibb on the aesthetics of disinformation. A profile by Muna Mire of the filmmaker Tourmaline. 1,500 words by Elvia Wilk on how Nancy Baker Cahill’s augmented-reality works are freeing public monuments from the ideology of control. Maika Pollack responds to Thao Nguyen Phan’s Perpetual Brightness (2019).
