Husband and wife Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, two of the most celebrated conceptual artists in the world, work as a team, in conversation as in their art.
Emilia quotes a familiar dictum about the difference between good art and bad: “I walk into the room, I look at the art work, I say ‘So what?’ “The possibility to look at this world like an outsider, like a viewer not a creator – or to look from both sides – to create this distance is something not every artist can do.”
Despite the fact that the European spirit of fundamental freedoms doesn't seem to be blowing through Kyiv, perhaps a sober examination of a regional map will cause leaders there to realize that it is ignorant policy to unnecessarily turn neighbors into enemies.
The Council of Europe criticized the new law as it "does not provide adequate balance" between the official state language of Ukraine and that of national minorities.
IRONTON, Ohio -- A suspect has been taken into custody in the slayings of four people, including an 8-year-old boy, who were found fatally shot in a southeast Ohio home Wednesday.
A spokeswoman for the Ohio attorney general's office said Thursday that investigators have no indication of a connection between the cases.
SACRAMENTO -- California Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency Friday due to a lack of vaccines in a deadly hepatitis A outbreak in several California counties, CBS Los Angeles reports.
The declaration allows the state to "increase its supply of hepatitis A vaccines in order to control the current outbreak," Gov. Brown said in a statement. While immunizations from the federal vaccine program have been distributed to at-risk populations in affected areas in Los Angeles, San Diego and Santa Cruz counties, Brown's proclamation allows the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to immediately purchase and distribute vaccines to affected communities.
ILGA and Transgender Europe state that 36 countries in Europe require a mental health diagnosis for legal gender recognition change and access to health care, a stigmatizing classification that rests on the notion that a transgender person has something inexplicably wrong with them.
Stereotypical gender roles engrained within society mean that a transgender person must embody the behavioral traits of the gender they wish to transition to — a transgender man should be perceived as what is understood as masculine and a transgender woman as feminine, essentially.
If we were expecting the trends to budge, this is when they would be budging," said Andrew Stokes, a Boston University expert on tracking obesity.
Earlier this week, the World Obesity Federation (WOF) released new numbers estimating the costs associated with treating the effects of obesity faced by health care systems across the globe. According to the research, the U.S. was paying $325 billion per year in 2014 to treat cancers associated with obesity, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and other health issues linked to being severely overweight.
The awful news that all but two penguin chicks have starved to death out of a colony of almost 40,000 birds is a grim illustration of the enormous pressure Antarctic wildlife is under.
Over the next year we have the opportunity to create an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary – the largest protected area on Earth – which would put the waters off-limits to the industrial fishing vessels currently sucking up the tiny shrimp-like krill, on which all Antarctic life relies.
EDT. In the week that allegations against Harvey Weinstein rocked Hollywood, Fabrizio Lombardo has emerged as a central figure in the scandal – the so-called “Italian connection” accused of enabling the American producer’s alleged sexual harassment and abuses.
Brock, a model and writer from New Zealand, said Weinstein made unwanted sexual advances when she was 23 years old, and that Lombardo was part of the “pack of hyenas” who would “hunt” for him, enabling the producer’s alleged abuses.
The Death of Stalin, which chronicles the Kremlin infighting in the aftermath of the Soviet leader’s death in 1953, stars Steve Buscemi as Nikita Khrushchev, who eventually succeeds Stalin, and Simon Russell-Beale as Lavrentiy Beria, Stalin’s odious secret police chief.
“The death of any person is not a subject for comedy, and even more so the death of a head of state and a great leader,” said Nikolai Starikov, a politician who leads a fringe nationalist party and has written a series of bestselling books on Russian history, including one glorifying Stalin.
The Tuscaloosa News reported that Goodson’s attorneys, JD Terry and Cedrick Coleman, tried to have the trial moved to a neighboring county as the jury in Bibb County would likely be influenced by the podcast, but the judge refused.
The wildly popular S-Town podcast entranced listeners and ignited controversy earlier this year with its mesmerising portrayal of the residents of small-town Alabama.
