Alter is the new Post

A new modernity is emerging, reconfigured to an age of globalization – understood in its economic, political and cultural aspects.

Increased communication, travel and migration are affecting the way we live

Our daily lives consist of journeys in a chaotic and teeming universe

Multiculturalism and identity is being overtaken by creolisation: Artists are now starting from a globalized state of culture

This new universalism is based on translations, subtitling and generalized dubbing

Today's art explores the bonds that text and image, time and space, weave between themselves

Artists are responding to a new globalized perception. They traverse a cultural landscape saturated with signs and create new pathways between multiple formats of expression and communication.

This is Altermodernism.
