What really caused documenta’s enormous deficit? That’s what the art world has been asking since documenta’s bankruptcy was narrowly averted last week by emergency loan guarantees from its shareholders, the city of Kassel and the state of Hesse. On Thursday, detailed information emerged for the first time following an extraordinary board meeting of documenta’s parent company, documenta gGmbH, where independent auditors presented an interim report.
In Spain, the Baroque painter Francisco de Zurbarán is one of the most celebrated painters of the country’s Golden Age. Yet outside his native land, he remains practically unknown. Now, his revered series of works depicting “Jacob and his 12 Sons” is coming to the United States for the first time, with a show at the Meadows Museum in Dallas that is set to travel to the Frick Collection in New York early next year. The event promises to transform Zurbarán’s stature on these shores.
A group of artists participating in a massive exhibition of German art in Beijing titled “Deutschland 8” have sent a letter to the project’s organizers to protest one of the show’s sponsors, a German arms manufacturing company. The artists say that they were unaware of the sponsor’s involvement until seeing the logos on the official invitation just days before the show’s opening earlier this week.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
