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.
Nicolas Bourriaud co-founded the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and is Curator for Contemporary Art at Tate. He is the author of Relational Aesthetics and Post-Production: Culture as Screenplay: How Art Reprograms the World.
