Contemporary Art and the Museum: A Global Perspective

Contemporary Art and the Museum: A Global Perspective Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Die Institutionalisierung zeitgenössischer Kunst, betrachtet man sie in einem globalen Rahmen, hat gerade erst begonnen. Trotz einer weltweiten Kunstproduktion und einer Welle von Biennalen hat die zeitgenössische Kunst speziell in Museen außerhalb des Westens noch kaum Fuß gefasst - ein Phänomen, das die Zukunft von Kunstmuseen auf vielfältige Weise betrifft. Während bei Künstlern vor allem die Migrationsfrage im Vordergrund steht, sind öffentliche Museen als lokale Einrichtungen mit der Standortfrage konfrontiert.
Der hochaktuelle Reader versammelt Essays von Kunstkritikern, Anthropologen und Kuratoren, die Gegenwart und Perspektiven nicht-westlicher Kunst und lokaler Kunstinstitutionen im Zeitalter der Globalisierung ausführlich diskutieren. Die Texte entstanden anlässlich zweier internationaler Konferenzen zum Thema und wurden für die Publikation um weitere signifikante Fachbeiträge ergänzt.

Synopsis:

Edited by Andrea Buddensieg, Peter Weibel. Text by Claude Ardouin, Hans Belting.

Synopsis:

All over the world, contemporary art is moving into traditional museums, its institutionalization an ongoing proposition with swiftly evolving practices. And more than ever before, the art of the moment is being made and collected internationally. Global art production is affecting museums everywhere, even those in traditional centers of cultural influence. For international artists, the question is how to get themselves and their work to cultural centers; for their home states and museums, the question is how to assimilate globalized contemporary art and its local stars. While institutions outside the West are often also outside a crucial loop of money and influence, the increasing range of biennials--from Sao Paulo to Senegal's Dak'Art--is redrawing the map. This essay collection explores the impact of contemporary non-western art and the world's local museums. Writers include Peter Weibel of ZKM Karlsruhe and Claude Ardouin of the British Museum.
