The theatre of history Lubaina Himid shows in Oxford and Bristol As an emancipated white male, writing this as Trump takes office, it can only feel that we white males are wrecking everything. Minutes after swearing in, the new US president was telling the motley crowds on Capitol Hill that migrants or foreign nations will have no part in his vision for America’s future. Now he is planning his wall. In the UK, our own government’s liking for foreigners does not even extend to our cross-channel neighbours. And so, unless you are a writer, an artist or perhaps a footballer, it is no time to be a migrant.

Interview with Anthea Missy, Graffiti & Street Artist Contemporary street artists are not concerned with impressing members of the Academy or approved authorities. Rather, they are interested in revoking many social conventions about art. Contemporary street artists produce their works with the belief that art does not only belong in museums but also on the streets with the people. That is why many of them, such as Banksy, operate under pseudonyms, because vandalizing public property is a crime.

“The result - is just a top of the iceberg and the rest is a constant monologue you have with yourself” - Ugo Rondinone Ugo Rondinone is a Swiss-born artist now living in New York. Working in a variety of genres, Rondinone is inspired by the inexhaustible energy of nature. In his work one finds fairy forests, installations with fabulous white trees, figures of birds covered with fingerprints, and giant stone totems – part of the last series in his oeuvre. Ugo Rondinone's latest commission, “Miami Mountain” was created for The Bass, Miami Beach's contemporary art museum, which unveiled the installation in November last year. This work has become an indispensable must see in Miami, and a permanent feature on both tourists’ and residents’ selfies. In this interview, Ugo Rondinone talks with Artdependence Magazine about the start of his career, his fears and achievements, and his attitude to contemporary art and social media.

Disruptor & 3D Printing - An Interview with Nick Ervinck "I have always been fascinated by the way art has developed due to new materials and techniques. In search of contemporary sculpture and it’s lack of renewal in response, I look for the interaction between virtual constructions and handmade sculptures.

No show for an audience – an interview with Frans van Lent In the dynamic between artist-artwork-audience, the role of the audience is the most passive. We, the spectators, consume the work that the artist has created, but the relationship tends to be very one-sided. We look, we listen, we contemplate, we may even engage, but we rarely influence the art in return, and it’s even rarer still for the audience to personify the artwork. Dutch artist Frans van Lent considers the relationship between performance and spectatorship, in a series of actions that come together under the label of Unnoticed Art.
