ESSAYS

BRASÍLIA AT MIDNIGHT
Latin America's powerhouse has buckled, and with startling speed. Seventy years of progress and downfall have taught Brazil's artists about survival—but this crisis may derail the country for good by Silas Martí

A HOUSE IS NOT A HOME
The world's biggest architecture prize went to a builder of social housing; more strangely, Britain's biggest art prize did too. It's easier to celebrate usefulness than aesthetics, but is it better? by Sam Kriss

DANCING IN CHAINS
Lovers make the best executioners. Jordan Wolfson's distressing robot stares us down with his menacing eyes, and endures a punishment all too familiar by Jarrett Gregory

REVIEWS

I. Churning Mumbai, commanding Beijing, glitzy Seoul: The century is being redrafted in the world's new eastern capitals. Their metastatic growth is something Rembrandt would recognize by Kanishk Tharoor

II. Do it for yourself. Two secretive artists, one Swedish, one Indian, trouble the history of abstraction. Are we dismantling the canon, or just voting on new members? by Zoë Lescaze

III. In fraught, uncertain Istanbul, galleries and artists face an autocratic government and crowdsourced censorship. Depicting Turkey's woes sometimes means looking past its borders by H.G. Masters

IV. Once French theory was dogma; now it's just another meme. The photographs of a perplexing philosopher resurface by the Staples Center by Travis Diehl
