    Last month it was announced that Lena Dunham, the American actor and creator of the hit US show Girls (2012–17) would adapt the book A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea (2017) by Melissa Fleming, the head of communications for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea tells the harrowing story of Syrian refugee Doaa al-Zamel, who survived the sinking of the boat she was on, attempting to cross from Egypt to Italy in 2014. Zamel was stranded for four days at sea, ending the ordeal holding two babies who had been entrusted to her by their dying families. Her only support was a child’s inflatable life ring given to her by her fiancé, who drowned in front of her in the choppy waters of the Mediterranean Sea. This year alone that same body of water has claimed the lives of nearly 2,000 people. – 上个月,据宣布,美国影星列娜·邓纳姆(Lena Dunham)将改编《希望比海洋更强大》(2017年)一书。《希望比海更强大》讲述了叙利亚难民多阿·扎梅尔(Doaa al-Zamel)的悲惨故事,她在2014年试图从埃及横渡到意大利的船只沉没中幸存下来。扎梅尔在海上搁浅了四天,结束了抱着两个孩子的苦难,这两个孩子是他们垂死的家人托付给她的。她唯一的支持是她的未婚夫送给她的一枚充气生命戒指,她被淹没在地中海波涛汹涌的海面上。仅今年一年,同样的水就夺去了将近2000人的生命。

    Earlier this year, Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS), the effective ruler of Saudi Arabia, went on a diplomatic tour of the United Kingdom and the United States. His aim was to rebrand the Saudi monarchy as an enlightened, reforming institution, and to attract the Western investment that his country desperately needs if it is to end its dependence on oil. On his trip, MBS not only shook hands with Donald Trump and Theresa May, but also met with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, and Disney CEO Bob Iger. Media coverage, on the whole, was credulously positive, as the supposed young reformer was held up as the new bright hope for Saudi Arabia, and perhaps for the Middle East itself. – 今年早些时候,沙特阿拉伯的有效统治者穆罕默德·本·萨尔曼王储(MBS)对英国和美国进行了外交访问。他的目标是重塑沙特君主制为一个开明的、改革的机构,并吸引西方投资,如果沙特要结束对石油的依赖,西方国家就迫切需要这些投资。在访问期间,MBS不仅与唐纳德·特朗普和特丽莎·梅握手,还与Facebook的马克·扎克伯格、演员德韦恩·约翰逊、迪斯尼的CEO鲍勃·伊格尔会面。总的来说,媒体报道是令人信服的积极的,因为这位所谓的年轻改革者被视作沙特阿拉伯,或许还有中东的新希望。

    An imposing wooden structure bisected with lines of thread greets visitors head-on at the entrance of the current Anni Albers show at the Tate Modern. The contraption – a shaft countermarch loom – is echoed at the end of the exhibition, with a Structo Artcraft loom that was used by Albers herself. As the UK’s first major retrospective of Alber’s work, the galleries are filled with over 350 objects, ranging from her geometric wall hangings to textiles for interiors and architecture, her writing, and prints and drawings. Bookending the exhibition with the tools of her trade ensures the method of creation is kept at the very heart of the show: this is unapologetically about a textile artist.  – 在泰特现代美术馆举办的当前安妮·阿尔伯斯展览的入口处,一座雄伟的木结构被线条分割成两半,迎面迎接来访者。这个装置——轴式逆行织机——在展览结束时与阿尔伯斯自己使用的结构艺术织机相呼应。作为英国对艾伯作品的第一次主要回顾,画廊里摆满了350多件物品,从她的几何壁挂到室内和建筑用纺织品、她的写作、印刷品和绘画。用她所从事的行业的工具预订展览会确保了创作方法始终是展览的核心:这毫无疑问是关于一个纺织艺术家的。
