Okwui Enwezor, Noted Curator and Promoter of African Art, Dies at 55

Democracy Now - Wed, 03/20/2019 - 13:00
Renowned Nigerian art curator Okwui Enwezor has died at age 55 after a battle with cancer. Enwezor was the director of the Haus der Kunst museum in Munich, Germany, until last year. He was also an art critic, educator, editor and writer. He worked to put African art and artists center stage, as well as women artists. In 1994, he founded Nka, a magazine for contemporary African art. His exhibit “The Short Century,” celebrating African art and independence movements, was hailed as a landmark exhibition. Enwezor was the first African-born chief curator of the Venice Biennale and was widely credited for bringing political art back to the prestigious festival. Democracy Now! spoke to Okwui Enwezor in Venice in 2015.

Court Upholds Chicago Officer's 7-Year Sentence for Killing Unarmed Black Teenager Laquan McDonald

Democracy Now - Wed, 03/20/2019 - 13:00
The Illinois Supreme Court has let stand a less than 7-year prison sentence for former police officer Jason Van Dyke, who was found guilty last year of second-degree murder for killing African-American teenager Laquan McDonald in 2014. The court denied a request by the state’s attorney general to resentence Van Dyke on Tuesday. Van Dyke, who is white, was found guilty on 16 counts of aggravated battery—one count for each of the 16 bullets he fired at McDonald. Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul petitioned the state Supreme Court to vacate Van Dyke’s second-degree murder sentence and instead impose a sentence on each of the 16 counts. If the petition had been granted, Van Dyke could have faced up to 96 years in prison. The news that Van Dyke will not be resentenced has sparked criticism in Chicago. We speak with Flint Taylor, an attorney with People’s Law Office and author of “The Torture Machine: Racism and Police Violence in Chicago,” and Lilia Fernández, a professor of history and Latino studies at Rutgers University. She is the author of “Brown in the Windy City: Mexicans and Puerto Ricans in Postwar Chicago.”

Høyre størst?

Klassekampen - Sun, 03/17/2019 - 17:28
• Det er under seks måneder igjen til høstens kommunestyre- og fylkestingsvalg. Nettstedet Poll of polls har gjennomført en beregning basert på målinger som omfatter 45 kommuner. Her antydes det at det blir kamp på kniven mellom Ap og Høyre om hvem som blir landets største parti. Det vil i tilfelle være et politisk jordskjelv sammenliknet med forrige kommunevalg da Ap fikk 33 prosent og Høyre 23,2 prosent. I Poll of Polls beregning, som dekker perioden juni i fjor til mars i år,...

• I går våknet vi opp til nyheten om at muslimer samlet til fredagsbønn i New Zealand hadde blitt angrepet av en høyreekstrem skytter. Da Klassekampen gikk i trykken i går var 49 mennesker bekreftet døde, mens over 20 er alvorlig skadd eller kritisk såret. Terroristen var tungt bevæpnet og skjøt mot alle. Samtidig filmet han det som skjedde, og han hadde på forhånd lastet opp et dokument på nett hvor han redegjør for sin begrunnelse for å gjennomføre angrepene. Likhetene med Anders...
