Altermodern Tate Triennial 2009

Author(s): Nicolas Bourriaud


The term 'Altermodern' describes art made in a global context which is a reaction against cultural standardisation and commercialisation. This book focuses on each of the four main facets of the Altermodern; it defines these as the end of postmodernism; cultural hybridisation; travelling as a way to produce forms; and the expanding formats of art.
