The failure of Altermodernism to address the internet age.

The failure of Altermodernism to address the internet age. For Altermodernism is a series of works on paper that are themselves the digital equivalent of the printed word. They are made in the studio and are exhibited in the gallery. The work is composed of four elements: paper, graph paper, color paper, and ink. The paper and graph paper, as well as the ink, are made of paper. The paper is applied to the paper with a brush and then rubbed and scratched. The process is repeated until the paper becomes completely covered in color. The works are not, however, completely self-sufficient. One can easily imagine the artist using his hand to brush up on the paper, so that the art becomes self-reflexive. In this case, the artist has also replaced the graph paper with the color paper. But the relationship between the two are not completely clear. The ink is still visible on the paper, but it is not the same as that of the paper. The ink is simply there, just as the paper remains a kind of surrogate for the paper. The artist has made the ink a sign of the freedom of the hand and the hand of the artist, and it is this freedom that is sacrificed in Altermodernism. The works are thus both a physical and a conceptual critique of the current state of art. As in the case of Altermodernism, the artist is in a position to point out the ways in which contemporary art is being dominated by a narrow, narrow range of signs and symbols. The artists critique is not directed against the limits of art, but against the limits of language. The artist is engaged in a dialogue with the signs that are bound up with that which is offered as art. As in the case of Altermodernism, the artist has placed himself in the role of the agent of the limits that are imposed on art.

It is a shame that the exhibition did not have the courage to engage with the issues of globalisation, surveillance, and social media. In the end, it failed to make a convincing case for the importance of the work of artists, activists, and institutions.

In this context, Altermodernism stands as an ironic, tragic, and ultimately futile gesture. Yet it is a serious attempt to grasp the current state of affairs, and one that suggests that all of us can still use the internet to connect with one another, to communicate, and to make connections. In this light, Altermodernism is a positive and effective attempt to find new ways to work together to solve the problems of globalization.

The Internet, the digital revolution of the 21st century, is not only the most radical development of our time; it is the most interesting, in itself. The internet is the most advanced medium of communication available to the average person; it is a way of communicating that is completely automated, completely impervious to human interaction. This is what we do with the information we receive from the media. We do not interact with it, we transmit it. This is the essence of the digital revolution.The exhibition contains a number of photographs, each one shot in a different direction. These are taken in a different location, but they are all taken the same way. The artist took them as a group of photographs taken in the same places, and they form a kind of new cityscape. The camera is always pointed at the same point. The photographs are always clearly visible, but their meaning is lost in the distance. They are both completely abstract and completely concrete. The idea of the photograph is absent from these photographs. The exhibition is about the photography, but it is not about photography. It is not even about photography. It is about the media we use to communicate.
