In the street where no-one steals your shoes, The Devil is a Loser
We arrive deafened by the noise of our cranky bicycles on cobblestones in Kreuzberg to find a pavement littered with hundreds of pairs of shoes, writes Holly Wales, and inside everyone is stepping carefully across a network of Perspex frames on the floor, a mix of socks and pink slippers, everyone is studying all the work with a great deal of curiosity; or perhaps to work out where they should put their feet next.

Interview with DAHRA’s Rishi Sodha about 3 Minutes
3 minutes is an elaborate graphic design project, a black slipcase containing eleven sixteen-page booklets (above). And it’s in aid of a good cause, the Tibet Relief Fund. The content – ten moving, often shocking interviews that shed light on ‘the issues faced by the people of Tibet’ – is intended to make us stop and think about the situation, and maybe do something about it.

Curation is a highly context-sensitive undertaking, writes Sebastian Schmidt-Tomczak. Though Glasgow’s Lighthouse is about to close, the building is still open – with a distinct lack of activity on the lower floors. Yet the escalator journey to the top is rewarding: ‘Cold War Neons’, an exhibition of Warsaw’s neonisation programme of the 1960s and 70s is a delightful curatorial achievement.
