The voice behind It Must Have Been Love had suffered from health problems after undergoing radiation treatment for a brain tumour

Marie Fredriksson, who as the singer of Roxette was one of the most recognisable voices in 1980s pop, has died aged 61 following a long illness.

Her family said in a statement to Expressen, a newspaper in her native Sweden: “It is with great sadness that we have to announce that one of our biggest and most beloved artists is gone”.

A huge exhibition in Madrid of sketches, photographs and paintings records the plight of the 500,000 republican refugees after the civil war

In a cavernous space off one of Madrid’s main boulevards, a dying Federico García Lorca slumps like an unstrung puppet, a refugee cellist stares down Robert Capa’s lens, and the eyes of a young woman Pablo Picasso sketched 71 years ago meet the public’s gaze for the very first time.

The images, carefully arranged among hundreds of photographs, books, flags, paintings and audio archives, herald a belated homecoming.
Picasso, Lorca, Capa … art reveals fate of exiles who fled Franco’s Spain

Too much of our #Culture is dictated by what #Artists & #Writers
By advertisers and media, I would say. Moreover, you say it yourself too:
The #creative people in this world need to stop serving up #commercial #garbage and begin writing things that #struggle with finding acts of free-will, and objectively #ethical good acts.

That’s not #creativity, that’s a #feedback #loop!
I concur, but I beg you not to blame artists. Let's point the finger to who are really responsible for this.
