ArtReview’s November issue is out! Featuring Renzo Martens, Rosa Aiello, Lynda Benglis, Haneda Sumiko and Shirin Neshat…

J.J. Charlesworth examines the sometimes-controversial work of Renzo Martens and the Dutch artist’s treatment of the exploitation of suffering in relation to Africa and Europe, and the relationship of extraction between Western media systems and their subjects.

Rosa Aiello’s videos and installations look at issues of economics in both the art and wider worlds, tracing the nature of freelance and precarious work, and the effects that they have on workers’ ideas of self and wellbeing. ‘Despite freelancing being an increasingly common way of working,’ writes Chris Fite-Wassilak, ‘its mechanisms are often hidden away unshared.’

Also in this issue: Ren Scateni introduces the ways in which the much-overlooked pioneering documentary filmmaker Haneda Sumiko tackled issues of gender stereotyping and the not so gradual erosion of rural life in postwar Japan. Jo Applin catches up with Lynda Benglis, whose work, the artist asserts, is always about transformation and an attempt to give abstract ideas form. And Fi Churchman talks to American-Iranian artist Shirin Neshat about her latest body of work, Land of Dreams, which focuses on her position as an ‘American immigrant’ and the possibilities and restrictions that identity offers in relation to her upbringing in Iran.

Plus: Catherine Balson takes a look at an intertwining of art and psychiatry in a former asylum on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro; artist Aaron Angell explores two examples of design and cosmology in a pair of London houses (and comes up with a new design movement while he’s at it); Martin Herbert wonders why we encourage so many young artists to become tribute acts; and Justin Jaeckle looks at the musical Andy, Gus Van Sant’s Tribute to the Pope of Pop. To top it all off – exhibition and book reviews from around the world!
