In this post-lecture interview, Alfredo Cramerotti briefly exposes the main idea of Aesthetic Journalism, and the various activities and intitiatives that form the body of research.

It gives the critical underpinning to the idea of expanding curatorial and artistic activities beyond the environment of art. In particular, as the lecture addressed, it looks into the possibility of creating other ‘spaces’, however risky and limited in time and scope, in order to challenge the ‘safe’ fencing of artistic practices within the (global) art circuit, and will present a number of cases in which CPS pushed these boundaries.
