Nottingham Contemporary – The Geopolitical Turn: Art and the Contest of Globalisation / Evidence and imagination: the urgency of geopolitics and the necessity of geopoetics by Alfredo Cramerotti

Posted in nEws and rEleases, shortEssays/cortiSaggi [English/Italian] by alcramer on August 22, 2010

Talk for The Geopolitical Turn: Art and the Contest of Globalisation Conference 08 May 2010 at Nottingham Contemporary, UK.

What are the reference points for contemporary art in a global economy that creates enormous wealth as well as widening inequality? The opening conference explores the many strategies artists use to reveal the processes and human consequences of the globalised market economy.

Over the past five years Alfredo Cramerotti has written about the aesthetic merger of contemporary art and the news media. By adopting the ubiquitous tropes of interviews, graphic mapping, and Magnum style photography an increasing number of artists have borrowed from these visual languages to present their work into a context closely aligned with investigative journalism. Drawing from his recent book Aesthetic Journalism: How to inform without informing (2009, Intellect) and select works from Uneven Geographies, Cramerotti will be speaking about the growing overlap between global news media and contemporary art.

By addressing this topic Cramerotti will seek to answer a number of questions including: Does such an integration of art and journalism emancipate art from a closed sphere of discourse allowing it a more social and political dimension? Does the use of an investigative methodology within contemporary art practice shift an understanding of truth and subjectivity? By borrowing from forms of news media, what new modes of exhibition practice are artists, curators, and writers enabling to develop cultural relationships between the global relevance to local issues?

Aesthetic Journalism: How to Inform without Informing

Aesthetic Journalism
How to Inform Without Informing
By Alfredo Cramerotti

ISBN 9781841502687
Paperback 112 pages 230x174mm
Published September 2009
Price £19.95

As the art world eagerly embraces a journalistic approach, Aesthetic Journalism explores why contemporary art exhibitions often consist of interviews, documentaries and reportage. This new mode of journalism is grasping more and more space in modern culture and Cramerotti probes the current merge of art with the sphere of investigative journalism. The attempt to map this field, here defined as ‘Aesthetic Journalism’, challenges, with clear language, the definitions of both art and journalism, and addresses a new mode of information from the point of view of the reader and viewer. The book explores how the production of truth has shifted from the domain of the news media to that of art and aestheticism. With examples and theories from within the contemporary art and journalistic-scape, the book questions the very foundations of journalism. Aesthetic Journalism suggests future developments of this new relationship between art and documentary journalism, offering itself as a useful tool to audiences, scholars, producers and critics alike.
