Description

If modernity warrants a return to the origin of art, then French curator and art critic Nicolas Bourriaud is right when he claims that this is the time to redefine the concept of “what is modern.” Our century’s modernity will be invented, precisely, in opposition to all radicalism, claims Bourriaud. So then, being “radicant” – from the Latin origin of “roots” – means setting one’s roots in motion, transplanting behaviors, and exchanging ideas rather than imposing them. Looking at the world through his globalized prism of art, Bourriaud sketches a “world art criticism” in which works are in constant dialog with the context from which they’re produced.
