Real Review is a quarterly contemporary culture magazine exploring “what it means to live today”. At a time when new omens appear on a daily basis: uncontrollable fires and floods, melting ice, rising seas, mass extinction, incurable pandemics — this new issue titled End Times is about a different relationship with the future, as truly beyond our prediction or conception. It concerns inaction, a new type of passivity and patience, a heightened sense of our own being in the world, our collective humanity, and the value of non-human life.


In this issue:


  • Ryuichi Sakamoto on the meaning of good timing
  • Olafur Eliasson presents a special artwork to help us feel more together
  • Will Self reviews deep adaptation and the ellipsis
  • Curator Sarah McCrory reviews the work of feminist artist Alexis Hunter, who in turn reviews why the wives of Marxists still do the housework
  • Hito Steyerl looks at the algorithms designed to distinguish faces from butts
