BOURRIAUD ALTERMODERN PDF

People don't really talk about postmodernism any more. Should we look for a word to replace it? Well, Altermodern is a term the influential French theorist and curator Nicolas Bourriaud launched on the art world with his iteration of the Tate Triennial. It attempts to give shape to a generation of artists coming of age after postmodernism, in the first decade of a century defined by the juggernaut of globalised commerce, rolling out standards and squashing diversity. These are works with past lives and a future of inevitable change. Altermodern then describes a way of making where journeys dominate, not just in space but also in time.

Unlike historical modernism, which saw time as a straight line upon which it was the newest, highest point, to be altermodern is to conceive of time as multiple and mixed. Rather than drawing inspiration from a local scene, as he puts it "the artist turns cultural nomad. As Bourriaud writes, "the line is more important than the points along its length.
