This week, we have an exclusive interview with Marina Abramovic: what's the future of performance in the post-pandemic art world? You can listen to our previous podcast where we paid tribute to the performance art trailblazer Ulay, who died on 2 March—and discussed his years of collaboration with Marina Abramovic— with Catherine Wood, Tate Modern’s senior curator of performance art here.

Also, as the lockdown steadily eases in Germany, we ask Catherine Hickley, The Art Newspaper's correspondent in Berlin, how it feels to step foot in a museum again. You can also read about her experience.

And in the latest in our Lonely Works series, the painter Ian Davenport tells us why he’s made a new body of work inspired by Pierre Bonnard’s Nude in the Bath (1936), which is in the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. A show of Davenport's new work is scheduled to launch online on 26 May.
