V2_ presents BlowUp Reader #2: Every Artist, a Journalist (free download)

Posted in nEws and rEleases, shortEssays/cortiSaggi [English/Italian] by Curatorview on August 30, 2011

This short e-Book, the second in the series of Blowup Readers released by V2_, explores the phenomenon of artists working in documentary and journalistic forms, and what this crossover between art and journalism creates.

Blowup is a series of events and exhibitions that explore contemporary questions from multiple viewpoints. Blowup zooms in on ideas, bringing into focus clear pictures of how art, design, philosophy, and technology are transforming our lives — or reinforcing the status quo.
