Frieze Projects at Frieze London 2016, supported by the LUMA Foundation, brings together a series of seven complex and thought-provoking projects curated by Raphael Gygax. This year’s programme is inspired by questions on human relationships and the transformative potential of art; it brings together several diverse artistic fields, including literature, theatre and sound composition.

Artists from different generations and from around the globe have been invited to think about such concepts as diversity, transformation, hospitality and learning, and particularly how these concepts relate to humanity. The participating artists are Sibylle Berg, Claus Richter, Martin Soto Climent, Coco Fusco, Julie Verhoeven, Samson Young and winner of the 2016 Frieze Artist Award Yuri Pattison. The programme also presents Operndorf Afrika (Opera Village Africa), an arts project initiated in 2009 by German film/ theatre director and artist Christoph Schlingensief (1960–2010).
