Inside:

Ten exhibitions on through March you won’t want to miss, in New York, Sydney, Hamburg, Porto, Berlin, Paris, São Paulo, London, Milan, by Martin Herbert.

Points of View – our writers on what’s happening in the artworld and beyond:

Mike Watson on rethinking artistic standards; Sam Jacob on digital tools, and all that junk; Brad Phillips on the Rothkos hanging at the back of porn sets; Jonathan ‘The Donald’ Neil on Donald Trump’s plan for the artworld; J.J. Charlesworth on Ai Weiwei and the future of art and activism; a cover letter, from the files of Jonathan Grossmalerman; and the first in a new series of columns, where Maria Lind, curator of the next Gwangju Biennale, assembles work for the opening in September.

Great Critics and Their Ideas: Rosa Luxemburg on Monet, Biggs and Collings, and David Bowie, interview by Matthew Collings.

Other People and Their Ideas: Kelly Ying, the Chinese collector and cofounder of the Shanghai art fair Art 021 talks to Mark Rappolt.
