Frog Frog 15 hits the newsstands in November 2015. Olympia Campbell is on the cover, photographed for Frog by Jüergen Teller at the Musée Picasso in Paris. This is a very special issue, as we celebrate Frog’s 10th anniversary! For this anniversary issue, Juergen Teller shot a 28-page super exclusive spread at the Musée Picasso in Paris especially for us, while Stéphanie Moisdon interviewed Bernard Picasso himself. Italian architect and designer Andrea Branzi, a member of Archizoon between 1964 and 1974, is featured in an exclusive interview for Frog with Chloé Valadie and Gaëtan Brunet –here he shares his provocative views on ecology, among many other things:

View a FREE digital sample of Metalsmith Volume 38 No 2 (April 2018) Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin The Nationalgalerie’s permanent collection at the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin features major figures and movements in art since 1960, taking up where the Neue Nationalgalerie leaves off. The museum reveals these artistic trends in all their diversity: the audacious redefinitions of painting, the continuation of traditional sculpture in object art, the special role of photography and multimedia concepts in video and film. A historically-defined exhibition style was consciously avoided in favour of an open presentation concept embracing all the media used by the various artists. Despite the striking spaciousness of its premises, it is not actually possible to show all of the museum’s work at once. The museum’s collection of paintings features works by Gerhard Richter, A.R.

Lacanian ink. Certainly marked by the work of Jacques Lacan, much as by the writing on Jacques Lacan, lacanian ink has been going for 19 consecutive years. And lacanian ink belongs in NYC, it was born here, it is done here. In this particular sense I was happy to realize how, together with a number of other journals, lacanian ink has been a witness to contemporary culture in the last decade. Today, there are few of them that continue. Bomb and lacanian ink are two of them. "If I am anything in the picture it is always in the form of a screen."

Crafts. In our September/October issue, we meet makers partnering with nature in fascinating ways. Japanese artist Kazuhito Takadoi tells us about weaving with harvested grasses and branches, German wood turner Ernst Gamperl discusses his ten-year tribute to one gargantuan oak tree, and we discover a new breed of designers using biomaterials to grow textiles for the wardrobe of the future. Meanwhile, to mark the 10th anniversary of the British Ceramics Biennial in Stoke-on-Trent, Crafts asked V&A director Tristram Hunt to assess the revival of ceramics in the city, the challenges the industry still faces and what should happen next. Elsewhere, our columnists bring marginalised female makers into the spotlight, with Glenn Adamson arguing for the importance of women-only exhibitions and Tanya Harrod rewriting a historical wrong. Stories about women’s labour, sexuality and migration are also brought into sharp relief in a dazzling series of textile photograms.
