La curatela in tre mosse.










Ai Weiwei documenta 12

E’ iniziato sullo scorso numero di Artribune Magazine un “convegno a puntate”. Per discutere dell’attività curatoriale odierna e futura, e della sua trasformazione. Un confronto coordinato da Alfredo Cramerotti, che apre le danze con tre parole-chiave. Nelle prossime tappe transiteranno in questa inchiesta interventi di curatori, editori, artisti, educatori: Blanca de la Torre, Cathy Haynes, Christine Eyene, Cristiana Tejo, Fay Nicolson, Kari Conte, Reloading Images, Saskia van der Kroef… Ognuno con la propria tripletta di spunti. Obiettivo: facilitare e sviluppare forme di cittadinanza attiva.

Continua qui: La curatela in tre mosse.

Artist Talk | Stefanos Tsivopoulos and Alfredo Cramerotti

October 04, 2011 6:30pm

Please join us on October 4th at 6:30pm for a discussion with Stefanos Tsivopoulos and Alfredo Cramerotti in connection with the current exhibition Stefanos Tsivopoulos: Borrowed Knowldege.

Borrowed Knowledge is a show in two parts: The Blind Image and The Public Library of Borrowed Knowledge. The show takes as its starting point an investigation into the construction of visual history and its relation to images and history’s claim to truth through two multifaceted works. The Blind Image  brings together the film Amnesialand (2010), the artist’s most recent film Blind Image, a series of photos and display of books. The Public Library of Borrowed Knowledge will attempt to open up a participatory dialogue relating to the idea of knowledge production and cultural translation, initiating a collective working process for subsequent presentations.

Alfredo Cramerotti (1967) is a writer, curator and artist based in the UK. His cultural practice explores the relationship between reality and representation across a variety of media and collaborations such as TV, radio, publishing, internet, media festivals, writing and exhibition curating.
