Francesco Jodice, What We Want, Phi Phi Ley, R18, 2003

The exchange between the artist Francsco Jodice and the curator Alfredo Cramerotti is centred on the question of “fragments”. What we usually expect is a linear explanation of the phenomena we encounter (in the Western philosophical tradition) but in reality there are areas of our existence that we can only give meaning to by approaching them in a circular way.

The snapshot of a system (in this case, a given society) is also the snapshot of the people who compose it, and especially of the artist who works on “giving sense” to that system in which he is living.

Private Investigations is a compilation of texts and image-based contributions by former Büchsenhausen Fellows, addressing their own research-based art practice and discussing the same in contributions specifically created for this publication. The focus of the book is on artistic strategies which attempt to infiltrate the hegemonic discourses of knowledge, which are currently emerging also in the art context, while at the same time proposing own ways of appropriating and processing knowledge. Private Investigations includes contributions by Alfredo CRAMEROTTI, Judith FISCHER, Geoffrey GARRISON, Alison GERBER, Ana HOFFNER, Brigitta KUSTER, Ralo MAYER, Andrei SICLODI and Alexander VAINDORF.

Alfredo Cramerotti: Aesthetic Journalism
13 April 2010, 6:30-8:00, Rivington Place, London

Autograph ABP is proud to present a talk at Rivington Place with writer, curator and artist Alfredo Cramerotti. Addressing a growing area of focus in contemporary art, Aesthetic Journalism investigates why contemporary art exhibitions often consist of interviews, documentaries and reportage.

Art theorist and curator Alfredo Cramerotti traces the shift in the production of truth from the domain of the news media to that of art and aestheticism – a change that questions the very foundations of journalism and the nature of art. The book probes the current merge of art with the sphere of investigative journalism and explores how this new mode of information is appropriating more and more space in modern culture. Aesthetic Journalism suggests future developments for this new relationship between art and documentary journalism, offering itself as a useful tool to audiences, scholars, producers and critics alike.

Cramerotti probes the current merging 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.
