The family as structure, model, metaphor, place of origin and point of no return. A starry cast of contributors including Dominikus Müller on Oscar Murillo and Henrik Olesen, Bruce Hainley on Claude Wampler, and Nicholas Schafhausen on Gerhard Richter. Aaron Moulton takes us from a nativity scene in Otto Muehl’s commune to a grave-digging by artist Lazaros, Aki Sasamoto tells us who her favourite artists are. The psychoanalyst Jamieson Webster and philosopher Chiara Bottici write about the Kardashians and the Freudian family in their essay “The Family Is Sick”.
