Auditorium of the SCHOOL OF MEDIA ART, Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts

Schools of Visual Arts, Charlottenborg, Kongens Nytorv 1, 1050 Copenhagen, Denmark

Alfredo Cramerotti, Director of MOSTYN, Wales’ Contemporary art Centre and writer of the book Aesthetic Journalism: How to Inform without Informing on how the artist can find ways not only to ‘import’ journalism into art, but also re-insert an artistic approach into the information industry.

Alfredo will reflect on the concept of public opinion. Does it work as an aggregate and is it open to critical understanding?

Further contributions by Jasmina Metwaly artist and member of Mosireen collective in Cairo, and Truls Lie, documentary filmmaker, editor-in-chief of DOX European Documentary Magazine and a film critic at Le Monde Diplomatique, Scandinavian edition. Final discussion
lead by the hosts: Carsten Juhl, Head of Department for Art and Theory and Tijana Mišković, Academic Research Project Coordinator.

About the seminar MEDIA, REVOLT AND CRITICISM: Globally we are being confronted with new encounters between visual art and information practices. In urgent and tense situations like the Arab Spring the moving images become important means of communication, especially because of their manipulative nature.

This seminar is the 2nd part of Arab Spring art seminar at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, that started in October 2011. The next seminar will take place December 14, 2012 including presentations by: Seamus Kealy, museum director at The Model, Aida Eltorie from Finding Projects Association and visual artist Rabih Mroue.
