Q/A KENNY SCHACHTER
Can art still be fun?

PORTRAIT TETSUMI KUDO
With its fluorescent colors, organic forms and apocalyptic scenography, the work of the Japanese artist makes the boldest post-Internet art look like its impoverished nephew. By Joanna Fiduccia

PORTRAIT DOROTHY IANNONE
The artist is best known for paintings celebrating the “ecstatic unity” of her relationship with the artist Dieter Roth. She was connected to Fluxus, but too uncompromising in how she brought her personal life, identity and sexuality into her art to be considered part of its canon. By Barbara Casavecchia

PORTRAIT MARIE ANGELETTI
The French artist ties her art, the conditions of its production, the artist's life, her exhibitions and commissions and the circulation and distribution of images into a knot that is impossible to untangle. By Dominikus Müller

INTERVIEW JOSEF STRAU
The artist spoke to Anna Gritz about deeply rooted behavioural patterns, subjectivity as a system, alternative economic models – and how in the end, although he hated it so much, art is what saved him.

Q/A DANIEL BAUMANN
What is the promise of form?

ESSAY: FATE AND FORM
