The appointment of the Indonesian art collective Ruangrupa as directors of Documenta 15 was a shock to the art world. No cult of personality on this edition of the Kassel art show, but a collective view on the (art) world now and tomorrow. A sign to the rest of us that the future will be collective or will be not? It was not easy to find any comprehensible information on Ruangrupa but this small docu of German tv channel 3sat sheds a little light.
A great loss to the music world. Too soon indeed. Roy Hargrove will be remembered as the new young kid at the beginning of the nineties. Close on the heels of Wynton Marsalis to become the next trumpet god.
So sad to hear about the passing of Randy Weston. While his originality always stood without question, I was always struck by the visible joy on his face whenever he performed live. pic.twitter.com/8Ge0A90IMI
