Il settembre eterno dell'arte

Memestetica

Memestetica – Italian edition ONLY

Art in the twenty-first century has become a strange affair, even stranger than it was in the twentieth. The internet, new technologies, and social media have raided our visual universe with GIFs, photoshopping, and all manner of appropriation. Trolls, YouTubers, and Instagrammers are bequeathing us a set of practices and aesthetics that recall the precepts of the historical avant-gardes, playfully distorted in the weirdest, wildest, most uninhibited ways.

So, how has the art we still find in museums and galleries responded to such a reckoning? And more importantly: what if the art history textbooks of the future listed not the works of a few nineteenth-century artist-geniuses, but the memes of all those anonymous users hiding behind improbable pseudonyms? Memesthetics is the first book to draw a comprehensive cartography of the relationship between visual arts and digital culture since the early 2000s.

Tracing the path that’s taken us “from Duchamp to TikTok,” Valentina Tanni defines the contours of one of the most interesting, and at times disturbing, landscapes of our present. See related items here
