There is plenty to read this week about the Grenfell Tower fire in London, however this piece stands out. Sanaz Movahedi’s account of her friend and fellow artist Khadija Saye.

Jonas Mekas has published a new edition of his diaries I Had Nowhere to Go in paperback with Spector Books. A short article from the Telegraph discusses the filmmaker’s photographs of the Wiesbaden and Kassel/Mattenberg Displaced Persons Camps, 1945–48 showing at Documenta.

On a recent but fleeting trip to London I saw the wonderful Alberto Giacometti exhibition at the Tate Modern. The Spectator rightly praises the challenging exhibition.

A typically long and well illustrated piece from Marcus Bunyan on László Moholy-Nagy and LACMA’s Moholy-Nagy: Future Present exhibition.

And to end, the TLS and Rachel Bowlby review a number of new texts on Virginia Woolf.
