About the part that art plays in a globalising society

Framer Framed

La Razón (Reason, 2010), by Carlos Garaicoa. SMBA, See Reason from 18 December 2010 - 6 February 2011 with Carlos Garaicoa / Patrizio Di Massimo

Exhibition: See Reason at SMBA

The exhibition See Reason is the first tentative step of Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam in a long-term trajectory that will define our programming for the coming period. With Project 1975 (which derives its name from the year in which the Netherlands largely became a postcolonial nation), the programme essentially reconsiders contemporary art in view of postcolonialism. Project 1975 raises questions such as: what are the criteria for art in today’s new, geopolitical context? Is such a question even relevant in the postcolonial era? Alternatively, should we speak of a transnational era? Is it even possible to formulate new paradigms, new terminologies for art?
