Remaking Cosmopolitanism

Celebrating World Art Day, Friday 15th April, NeMe presents the video talk by George Alexander entitled Remaking Cosmopolitanism.

ArtLeaks Gazette No. 4

Today, art workers around the world are struggling to contextualize their practice in a period marked by human rights, labour, and anti-war campaigns, on the background of an ever violent and oppressive global climate. They are trying to reconcile their artworks, texts, exhibitions, projects with a desire to act politically in line with these campaigns by blurring the lines between artistic, non-artistic and political activist types of work. Their strategies have taken the form of non-violent actions directed at the museum and gallery system, the art market and even at local governments.

Previous research on these matters has been carried out in Belgium, the Czech Republic, France and other European countries. Simultaneously, he has been looking into alternative ways of communicating research, using mixtures of textual and visual languages to convey academic analyses.
