Sex, death and Rodin: the devilish bronze rediscovered after 100 years 28.8.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page

Rodin’s long-lost statue of a man locked in a fight with a serpent is an orgy of desire and terror and a slithering icon of his provocative genius

Auguste Rodin made sculpture modern by wrestling with its past. His art is a tangled sensual battle of old and new in which Michelangelo and the classical nude give birth to expressionism, surrealism and even dadaism.

A “lost” work by Rodin that has just resurfaced in Switzerland after a century exemplifies how passionately he embraced art’s noblest traditions – and how boldly he made them new.

Bihar elections: BJP and allies to meet on August 31 to reach seat sharing deal 28.8.2015 DNA: Opinion
BJP and its Bihar allies will meet on August 31 to thrash out a deal over seat-sharing in the state assembly polls amid strident demands being made by parties like LJP and RLSP for a large share of seats. Party General Secretary and Bihar in-charge Bhupender Yadav said party chief Amit Shah will head the meeting and played down the claims being made by allies, saying they have not conveyed it to BJP. LJP and RLSP presidents Ram Vilas Paswan and Upendra Kushwaha, both Union Ministers, besides HAM (Secular) chief Jitan Ram Manjhi are likely to attend the meeting, the first such gathering of all NDA allies over seat-sharing. Paswan and Kushwaha had earlier met Shah but sources in the two regionals parties said they have not been offered any concrete proposal so far. Kushwaha has asked BJP to contest 102 seats, it had contested in 2010 and leave 142 others to its allies. JD(U), BJP's partner in the last election before they split in 2013, had then fought 142 seats. Kushwaha has been supported by LJP's Bihar ...

Once you start banning rappers like Tyler, the Creator, where do you stop? 27.8.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
If the former Odd Future member really has been refused a UK visa because of offensive lyrics, then a dangerous precedent has been set Tyler, the Creator? Really? If it indeed transpires that his claim is true and the Home Office is trying to refuse him entry to the UK on the basis of encouraging homophobia and terrorism (the Guardian is awaiting comment from the Home Office), then this would go down as one of the stupidest and most ham-fisted attempts to clamp down on popular culture since the BBC forced Massive Attack and Bomb the Bass to change their names during the 1991 Gulf War. Tyler recently cancelled Australian shows after feminist groups demanded he be refused a visa (though his claim he had been banned turned out not to be the case), and the question then, as now, is: are you serious? Tyler, of all rappers? This is a lyricist whose whole oeuvre is based on confusion and self-doubt, about sexuality and gender relationships as on all other matters. The teenage lashing out demonstrated in his ...

Why plans for a new golf course have caused uproar in New Orleans 27.8.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest
The rebuilding of New Orleans’s massive City Park is one of the great post-Katrina success stories. But the creation of a new golf course has sparked protests among those who say a nature reserve would be better, and safer, for the city Following media coverage closely, Tim Ahern assumed that he had grasped the magnitude of Katrina’s destruction. But when he arrived in New Orleans in early 2006, Ahern realised the damage was far worse than anything he’d been able to comprehend from news accounts and television footage. “It looked like every journalistic cliché – trees uprooted, debris everywhere. I’d seen pictures, but when I got there I had to consider it all over again.” Ahern, a former reporter dispatched to cover disasters, says: “This was unlike anything I’d seen – worse than a fire or tornado. There was so much muck and silt everywhere. It was such complete ...

Refusing limits: Why the government must fund disability arts 27.8.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
With their funding under threat, acts which refuse to be sidelined find a platform in Edinburgh’s Integrated Fringe - but how can they survive the cuts? “It only took the NT 50 years to notice that it didn’t have any female writers and artists, it’s up to us to make sure that it doesn’t take another 50 to realise that they have so few disabled artists,” said one of the participants at If Not Now, When? which took place at Forest Fringe yesterday as part of the Integrated Fringe platform taking place in Edinburgh this August and showcasing the work of a wide range of disabled artists. It includes some genuinely stunning shows including Tourettes Hero’s Backstage in Biscuit Land and Jo Bannon’s Alba ...
