This incredible dance work by Tamara Alegre, Lydia Östberg Diakité, Nunu Flashdem, Marie Ursin and Célia Lutangu explores eroticism and togetherness – which is particularly striking when considered in contrast to the isolating impacts of social distancing.

(Password: mCri4nza_070315) Malacrianza [The Crow’s Nest] is the first ever film from El Salvador to get an international release. It tells the story of Don Cleo, a humble piñata seller in the city of San Salvador, whose precarious life becomes even more fragile when, out of the blue, he receives a threat of extortion: he must hand over a big amount of money in less than 72 hours if he wants to continue to live.

Paul B. Preciado nails it in this article for the current issue of Artforum, which considers Michel Foucault’s theories on biopolitics alongside Preciado’s own on the pharmacopornographic via Hugh Hefner, viruses, power and agency for resistance.

Recently I have been drawn back to Andrea Long Chu’s publication Females, and was reminded of two excellent reviews – one by Bryony White for frieze, and another by Sita Balani for Tribune. Females is both a complicated takedown of gender theories and an expansive speculative take on desire. Sita Balani led a Close Reading session of Chu’s text at the ICA in November 2019.

Initiated by Economy of Hours from Loughborough University London, this project seeks to ‘match’ furloughed workers with small creative businesses, community groups and voluntary sector organisations that are struggling to survive the current crisis and may slip through the cracks of government support. Strategic thinking and practical skills can be offered on a completely voluntary basis, and will not affect your rights as a furloughed worker.
