La nueva exposición de la Tate Britain, Altermodern, comisariada por Bourriaud (un guru de estos temas), nos muestra el fin del Postmodernismo y la llegada del Altermodernismo. Aquí os dejo el manifiesto y que cada cual juzgue como crea conveniente.

Altermodern Manifiesto: Postmodernis is dead

A new modernity is emerging, reconfigured to an age of globalisation – understood in its economic, political and cultural aspects: an altermodern culture

Increased communication, travel and migration are affecting the way we live

Our daily lives
consist of journeys in a chaotic and teeming universe

Multiculturalism and identity is being overtaken by creolisation: Artists are now starting from a globalised state of culture

This new universalism is based on translations, subtitling and generalised dubbing

Today’s art
explores the bonds that text and image, time and space, weave between themselves

Artists are responding to a new globalised perception. They traverse a cultural landscape saturated with signs and create new pathways between multiple formats of expression and communication.

The Tate Triennial 2009 at Tate Britain
presents a collective discussion around this premise that postmodernism is coming to an end, and we are experiencing the emergence of a global altermodernity.

muy interesante esto, pero s'i, cuando vas entendiendo una tendencia eso significa que los que la crean ya han tenido tiempo de cansarse de ella...

Esto de "artists traverse a cultural landscape saturated with signs and create new pathways between multiple formats of expression and communication" es curiosamente lo mismo que decian Cindy Sherman, Richard Prince, Sherrie Levine, Barbara Kruger, Jenny Holzer, etc. etc. ya en los setenta. Y se autodenominaban posmodernos...
Lo de ponerse nombres es muy divertido, sirve para vender revistas, da de comer a los comisarios...
