    Here are the week’s most interesting art links as chosen entirely subjectively: After finding horsemeat in ready meals, one wonders which artworks might be contaminated. Fortunately The L-Magazine has checked the situation out. Well, this looks entirely brilliant, perhaps inadvertently so: a breathing statue of Lenin has gone on show in Moscow. New York Times …

    Sorry for lack of postings of late. I’ve been on a short break in Rome. Keen observers will find this reflected in my first two chosen links of the week: In any other country he would surely be unelectable. Not so in Silvio Berlusconi’s Italy, from where Der Spiegel recalls the following gaffes. As luck …

    A focussed set of Found Objects this week as it proves time to crank up the blog again after an extended holiday season. Good to be back. Brighton might be the UK piercing capital, but even we would look twice at these Thai festival goers. Check out the gallery by Guillaume Megevand on Beautiful Decay. …

    It’s been a huge week in art, if you live in Miami. On these shores it was the Turner Prize. And there was no escaping either. My favourite coverage of the aforementioned Prize came from music journalist Alexis Petridis writing in the Guardian. Second fave bit of coverage came from the good folk at Pipe …

    One major presidential election later . . . this blog brings you a largely indifferent set of links: Obama’s uxoriousness may not be just what the world needs now. But this photo did the rounds and Phaidon has the story behind it. Seriously, it’s a relief. Meanwhile in British politics, cash strapped councils are selling …

    Unless you live in Ilfracombe, it’s been a relatively quiet week. Anyhow, here are the links: The Independent predicts that over time the Great British Public may grow to love Verity by Damien Hirst. But The Telegraph gives the former YBA a kicking over animal rights. Butterflies are people too. Art Info reports on a …

    We begin and end with Frieze, which seems only Fair (ahem). The other stories are good too: Chloe Nelkin was on a pleasingly alliterative gallery binge last week. Take a deep breath and enjoy her Frieze Frenzy. The Independent may be pushing it to call the Wiltshire monument an art gallery. But the findings of …

    Back from another short break with another flimsy excuse; please forgive these links for their occasional sporadicity: Story of the fortnight goes to the attention-starved goon who defaced a Rothko painting. Lets hope this is the first and the last we hear of Yellowism. Speaking of philistines, read all about minister Michael Gove’s architecture policy. …

    It’s been an eventful week, eventful in particular for a certain amateur art restorer. Here’s the main story from Art Info, and here’s some of the inevitable meme fallout (link courtesy @sheerinability). And here’s another costly art world cock up, this time by a Norwegian gallery who lost a Rembrandt. Slate discuss the real threat …
