Altermodern: Tate Triennial
Tate Triennial by Nicolas Bourriaud Editor. Few books can boast of introducing an entirely new word to the English language, but with the title of the Tate’s fourth Triennial exhibition, leading critical theorist and curator Nicolas Bourriaud does just that.
Made in today’s global context, “Altermodern” art is a reaction against cultural standardization and commercialization.
Characterized by artists’ cross-border, Few books can boast of introducing an entirely new word to the English language, but with the title of the Tate’s fourth Triennial exhibition, leading critical theorist and curator Nicolas Bourriaud does just that.
Characterized by artists’ cross-border, cross-cultural negotiations; a new real and virtual mobility; the surfing of different disciplines; the use of fiction as an expression of autonomy; concern with sustainable development; and the celebration of difference and singularity, Altermodern works are on the cutting edge of contemporary art and thought.
With essays and contributions from prominent writers, art historians, artists and philosophers, including Tom McCarthy, TJ Demos, Carsten Holler, and Okwui Enwezor, this captivating survey focuses on the four main facets of Altermodern art: As visually striking as it is intellectually challenging, “Altermodern” is the quintessential introduction to an exciting new direction in art.

All the arguments for the death of Post Modernism are in fact Post Modern arguments, and the only critique that does have a point are those attacking Modernism, which is an easy target.
There is no distinct clarity between the distinction of Modernism and Post Modernism nor of Post Modernism and Post Modernity, as the latter, post or not modernity, is dealing with technology, politics, soc This book does have its moments of interest, but it does not have a clear concise point of view or attack.
There is no distinct clarity between the distinction of Modernism and Post Modernism nor of Post Modernism and Post Modernity, as the latter, post or not modernity, is dealing with technology, politics, society as such and Modernism or Post Modernism is the context it is seen in.
A mute point of semantic you might think, but I would disagree as the book switches from one point of view to the other to create an argument a trick Plato uses that actually holds no water. The book does have a lot to say about Capitalism and Modernity, and its effects on the ‘other’, or the rest of the world, other than the West.
For example, that in Africa Modernism never happened, or in the middle East its somewhat rejection as soulles oppression. And I have a sneaky suspicion that Altermodern is post modernism operating as a re-boot to the system, which is utterly valid.
