ESSAYS

THE BEAT OF DISSENT by Chloé Buire
No city has a music scene like Luanda, where rappers risk jail to rhyme against the regime. Up all night in the most expensive city on earth

CINDERBLOCKS by Frederick Deknatel
Reconstruction is war by other means. Even before the horrific bombardment of Syria’s largest city, the battle to control its future had already begun

THEIR ALABASTER CHAMBERS by Daniel Fairfax
The new film A Quiet Passion is as gem-like as any verse by Emily Dickinson. But like all of Terence Davies’ movies, it owes more to painting than poetry

REVIEWS

I Has any aesthetic endeavor failed as totally as “political art”? And, against the nightmare presidency to come, are we just going to pull out the culture war playbook again? by Allison Hewitt Ward

II The world needs more just representations, but art takes more. An eminence of Chicago puts blackness at the center of the western tradition—and shows a younger generation how it’s done by Thomas Chatterton Williams

III Your last in fight meal was probably not served on dishes as fine as Lufthansa’s old set. A German design school pre figured today’s reliance on algorithms and metrics, as evoked in a new London museum by Ben Eastham

IV Americans got so excited by the Snapchat dog-ears filter; Japanese kids had that technology in the 90s. In Tokyo, selfie culture has a long history, one photographers ignore at their peril by Andrew Maerkle


PORTFOLIO The art of ANA VAZ: cheetahs and colonies
