As the art world eagerly embraces a journalistic
approach, Aesthetic Journalism
explores why contemporary art exhibitions
often consist of interviews, documentaries
and reportage. The attempt to map this
field, here defined as ‘Aesthetic Journalism’,
challenges the definitions of both art and
journalism, and addresses a new mode of
information from the point of view of the
reader and viewer. The book also explores
how the production of truth has shifted
from the domain of the news media to that
of art and aestheticism. Aesthetic Journalism
suggests future developments of this
new relationship between art and documentary
journalism, offering itself as a
useful tool to audiences, scholars, producers
and critics alike.
