Art and the historical moment
This week on CW, Chiara Marchini looks at how the Serbian art scene has responded to the new ‘normality’ of Western capitalism. Miguel Fernandes Ceia considers how Hermann Broch’s 1930s German trilogy The Sleepwalkers might speak to us today. And Valentine Rossetti welcomes the return of an aesthetic sensibility in recession-hit cinema, while Matt Trueman reviews Rory Kinnear as Hamlet at the National Theatre in London.
Meanwhile over at the Battle of Ideas festival website, new Battles in Print include Andrew Calcutt on journalism and Karl Sharro on architecture, while Sarah Boyes interviews Frank Furedi on what it means to be a liberal today.
