Marisol: the forgotten star of pop art 3.5.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
Once as famous and influential as Andy Warhol, the artist, who has died aged 85, fell into obscurity – but her enigmatic work is sure to be rediscovered and endure The artist Marisol, who has died aged 85 , was perhaps the most underestimated sculptor to emerge in New York in the 1960s – when the rigidities of the postwar avant-garde gave way and a pluralistic, hybrid set of styles began to flower. Her deadpan depictions of popes, presidents, and her own family, crafted from wood into boxy totems, captivated the art world and enticed the media, too. At the birth of pop , she was as famous and influential as Andy Warhol, and gorgeous, too – “the first girl artist with glamour”, Warhol said. Her art was on the cover of Time; Gloria Steinem profiled her for Glamour ; lines for her exhibitions stretched down the block. But Marisol was never comfortable with the media spotlight or the rapacious art market. At the height of her career she left New York on a years-long travel jag; she made fewer works in the ...
Five reasons parents are boycotting primary schools over Sats 3.5.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
Some children are off school on Tuesday in a ‘kids’ strike’ over tests their parents believe are too pressurising Parents protesting on social media using the slogan “Let our kids be kids” have kept their children at home on Tuesday over the standard assessment tests (Sats) for seven- and 11-year-olds , which they believe are putting their children under unnecessary pressure. The Department for Education said Sats were aimed at identifying children who may need extra help. It stressed that the assessment was carried out over a month in the normal course of teaching, not in a traditional exam environment. But teachers’ unions have complained that the tests are onerous to deliver and distract attention away from other subjects such as music, PE and ...

Paraguay battles over land rights in the courts and across the airwaves 3.5.2016 The Guardian -- World Latest

As soya companies appropriate land in Paraguay, many small-scale campesino farmers are forced out to cities. For those who stay to fight for their land, the conflict can turn bloody

For 14 years, Juan Aveiro broadcast Radio Mandu’arã to a cluster of communities in a remote corner of eastern Paraguay. He and his team of volunteer journalists worked from a makeshift studio painted with a mural depicting Paraguayan farmers, or campesinos, with their fists in the air, beneath a banner proclaiming “peace and justice!”

Then, in November, police raided Mandu’arã’s studio. “They took everything,” Aveiro says.

Nelly Furtado: 'YouTube pays more than nothing. That doesn't make it fair' 2.5.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
The Canadian singer joins Debbie Harry and Nikki Sixx’s in call for YouTube to increase its payments to musicians Related: Nikki Sixx launches campaign to get YouTube to ‘do the right thing’ over music royalties I am a Canadian singer-songwriter and independent artist. I have been following the news about YouTube’s debate with Sixx:AM (Nikki Sixx’s band) and Debbie Harry . I applaud Katy Perry and the rest of the artists who have begun their petition on the issues. I am educating myself about the arguments and have found that there is certainly a lack of transparency and a lot of spin going on. I want to outline a handful of issues I’ve found, because I have realised that this stuff matters, and if creators don’t fight for what’s right, who ...

Why are we boycotting school? Because of the pressure on our young children | Steve Rose 2.5.2016 Guardian: Comment is Free
Teachers and schools need our support. They, and our children, deserve a better future than the one Nicky Morgan is mapping out for them Hands up who knows what a subordinating conjunction is? I’m a journalist and I had no idea what one was, nor have I ever needed to. My seven-year-old son and daughter, however, were expected to explain what one is as part of their homework recently. This is where education is , these days – by my reckoning, pretty much where it was in the 1950s – and I’m not alone in fearing it’s going to get even worse. That is why I am taking my children out of school on Tuesday, along with many ...
