This year they became the first group since The Beatles to earn three US Billboard number one albums in less than 12 months and this weekend they’re playing in London. Haekyung Um explains the BTS and K pop phenomenon. Natalia Goncharova was a Russian avant-garde artist known for her large scale abstract canvases, performance art and textile and theatre design.
