The October issue of frieze is out now. In a themed section on 'Art, Culture and Appropriation', seven artists, writers and musicians discuss: ‘Is culture property? Who can speak for whom?’ Plus Paulo Bruscky interviewed and Kerstin Brätsch and Alexander Kluge in conversation; monographs on Leonor Antunes and Stuart Middleton; Rosalyn Drexler reveals the influences that have shaped her work; and Ilya and Emilia Kabakov answer the Questionnaire. Also in this issue: 34 exhibition reviews from around the world, including reports on the Manchester International Festival, PHotoESPAÑA, Alexandra Pirici at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein and Trajal Harrell at Barbican, London.
