How Latitudes Become FormsHow Latitudes Become Forms

Art in the Global Age

Published by Walker Art Center.
Edited by Philippe Vergne. Contributions by Philip Büther, Vasif Kortun, Baraka Sele, Kathy Halbreich. Text by Paulo Herkenhoff, Steve Dietz, Cuauhtemoc Medina, Hidenaga Otori, Hou Hanru, Vishakha Desai.

The rise of globalism has created tremendous challenges to old economic, political and cultural paradigms, changes that are increasingly reflected in diverse artistic practices across the planet. If disciplinary boundaries are now crossed as easily as geographic ones, how does the new internationalism that we are facing affect aesthetics and artistic production? Is there a link, for example, between the rise of video works and the global availability of digital media? Does the global information age facilitate an international language of art and an alternative reading of history, from art history toward art histories? From the perspective of a museum of modern and contemporary art--a purely European construct--the art institution has to overcome a major contradiction, one that exists between its mission of permanence and its mission of change. How can cultural institutions contribute to the revamping of their own structures now that the hegemony of Western modernity is being challenged? How can museums connect with new audiences through different practices, different scholarships, and different interpretive strategies that grow out of the sedimentation of their own history? To invite and encourage such dialogue, How Latitudes Become Forms looks at current scholarship on globalism and changing curatorial practices, and identifies critical models provided by artists themselves, featuring thought-provoking essays and conversations by curators, critics, and cultural programmers from across the world, as well as multidisciplinary artworks by more than 40 artists from Brazil, China, India, Japan, South Africa, Turkey and the United States.
