Given the ongoing political upheavals in the US, and the EU, what kind of artists’ work is relevant in an age of populist uprisings, when the far right is gaining power throughout the world? Martha Rosler and Hito Steyerl: War Games, one of the most important exhibitions of the year, offers compelling evidence in answer to such a question.
Forest Law is a groundbreaking exhibition on imagining altering our course as we face runaway global warming and unprecedented environmental destruction.
