Description Featuring Robert Crumb Art critic Robert Hughes has audaciously compared him to the likes of Bruegel and Goya: "he gives you that lusting, suffering, and crazed humanity." Nollywood A badly burnt body rises from a car wreck and a vampire taxi driver cradles his latest fare. The are images from a new book on Nollywood the trail-blazing Nigerian film industry whose shoestring budget and dynamically creative sensibility is taking the continent by storm. Ann Valerie Hash Amidst all of the structures and strictures of the fashion business it comes as a complete breath of fresh air to walk into the friendly and bustling atelier of Anne Valerie Hash. Keinholz Ed and Nancy Keinholz’s largest collaboration piece, The Hoerengracht, goes on display at London’s National Gallery. Walking through the artwork, the public will come face-to-face with life size models of whores and peer through windows into their world. Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground were no ordinary band. More like twisted art sound that would have seemed alien to hippies and straights alike. They were though no mere creation of Andy Warhol. This was a collaboration with mutual aims. Slavoj Žižek - First as Tragedy, Then as Farce The writer and philosopher, Slavoj Žižek may well have some of the answers you are looking for. The Heartbreaks A youth gang engaged in a marvellous pop caper; clever, poetic, charming and showing their love of Motown, mods and the sea in wonderfully skewed melodies. Excited? We are. Hurts Hurts look, feel and sound like something different. They are a duo for a start. There’s a swooping melancholy, but it’s backed by a bright pop sensibility. It’s this clash that gives it life.
