  • The Moscow Times report on a metal festival in Kabul. One attendee predicts that “Rock and roll will change the world.”
  • In London Review of Books, Andrew O’Hagan consider’s twitter’s response to the execution of Troy Davis. State sanctioned murder is quite the literary event.

  • The Guardian has a riveting profile of Jay Jopling, the man who hooks up the establishment with the avant garde.
  • Rachel Mason recalls some near-death experiences with performance artist Dawn Kasper on the Art21 blog.
  • Sigurd Wendland gives the art historical nude a reality check with shopping trolleys and, erm, chainsaws. Nude chaos is the headline on Beautiful Decay.

  • A good interview with perennial pop envelope-pusher Bjork in The Atlantic.
