MAM Art Course 08
No. 3 "New Relationships between Globalized Society and Art"

Japanese-English simultaneous translation available

Since the 1990s, globalization and the development of information technology have broadened our conception of the relationship between artists, artworks and audience, as well as the practicalities of art, such as exhibitions and museums. In this lecture, Bourriaud, widely known for his concept of "Relational aesthetics," offers a critical look at pre-existing systems and the concept of the art as seen through his own practice.
