Altermodern: Tate Triennial 2009

£14.99

Product description

Few books can boast of introducing an entirely new word to the English language, but with the title of the Tates fourth Triennial exhibition, leading critical theorist and curator Nicolas Bourriaud does just that. Made in today's global context, Altermodern art is a reaction against cultural standardization and commercialization. Characterized by artists cross-border, cross-cultural negotiations; a new real and virtual mobility; the surfing of different disciplines; the use of fiction as an expression of autonomy; concern with sustainable development; and the celebration of difference and singularity, Altermodern works are on the cutting edge of contemporary art and thought.

Signs of previous use (e.g. scuffs, minor blemishes) including a large crease to the front cover, curling at the edges and creases on the back.

Not ex-library but does contain some yellow and green highlighting.

However, no significant flaws and the binding remains tight.
