TateEtc and the Angel of Anarchy

The current issue of TateEtc is online, and includes articles by Mario Vargas Llosa on George Grosz, Martin Rowson on William Hogarth, and John Burnside writing about Kurt Schwitters. All the articles in the printed issue are available online, and there is also an online exclusive in which Kate Davis discusses Eileen Agar's sculpture "The Angel of Anarchy":
"However radical and vivacious Angel of Anarchy may still look today, maybe this object and what it stands for isn’t such a contradiction. Instead, it may be a breath of sanity. For me, it is a reminder that rebellion should be divine and imperative for art and society at large. I believe Agar is seeing clearly and daring us to do so too."
