Vol 17 (2016)

Introduction to the 2016 Edition

Welcome to our latest version of Culture @ the Olympics! The Rio 2016 Olympic Games was a remarkable Games for us and we covered all of the major artistic and cultural interventions around the Olympic city. For this version, we are switching from PDF articles to showcasing the posts we made during the Games. This is easier for reading on mobile devices and citing the work should be pretty simple too. We are also publishing our work in third party platforms and linking straight through from this edition to those essays. So, welcome, enjoy and see you in Pyeongchang!
