Alfredo Cramerotti: Aesthetic Journalism for Ælia Media  2011

talk, seminar, debate (Italian only)

Public talk at Villa delle Rose, Via Saragozza 228-230, 40135 Bologna, Italy - - - - - Thursday 7 July 2011, 7 pm - - - - - As part of the Studio of Ælia Media, a project by Pablo Helguera, winner of the International Award for Participatory Art, Alfredo Cramerotti will present his research about aesthetic journalism and the consequences for artistic practices. - - - - - Alfredo Cramerotti’s curatorial approach does not consist in creating (new) “knowledge” about something, but in sharpening the existing ways of production and circulation of knowledge. That means he encourages artists to create relations of mutual influence with other systems that govern or facilitate our life, like mass media, science, law, architecture and other activities and planning methods. It means to constantly change the perception of society with artistic means. In one of his recent projects, the European biennial of contemporary art Manifest 8 that took place in the Region Murcia in Spain, Alfredo opened a space for information exchange for the participating artists, a suspicious and spiteful terrain compared with the “certainties” of art. - - - - - During his conversation at Villa delle Rose, Alfredo will cast light on this kind of approach, from the concept to the realization, and he will invite the audience to discuss the modalities of hybrid practices which – like bio-politics, development of sustainability, virtual reality and other processes that sum up various disciplines – recreate individual and society on an everyday base.
