El crítico y curador peruano Gustavo Buntinx alertó sobre la crisis que está atravesando el mundo artístico y propuso alejarse "del gran ruido del arte contemporáneo"


El jueves último tuvo lugar la segunda jornada de Sur Global: Horizontes para una nueva Bienal de Arte, una actividad de intercambio entre artistas, curadores, críticos, coleccionistas y público en el Muntref (sede Hotel de Inmigrantes).
En ella, el historiador del arte, crítico y curador peruano Gustavo Buntinx se refirió -sin eufemismos- a la crisis por la que atraviesa el mundo del arte. A continuación repasamos los extractos más salientes de su alocución:
"En el mundo del arte se falsifica hasta las obras inexistentes."
"El arte crítico hoy corre el riesgo de morir de éxito."
"Son cuerpos inertes, amortajados a la espera de su valoración de mercado. (Al referirse a las obras de arte actuales)."
"Hemos sido descubiertos, celebrados, y enterrados en el mismo gesto (Al referirse al arte latinoamericano)."
"El aroma del dinero súbito enloquece."
"Asesinamos lo que consagramos."
"El arte contemporáneo empezó a morir cuando decidió convertirse en un deporte de masas, en este capitalismo aeróbico."
"La espectacularización del arte es el beso de Judas."
"La recuperación es posible solo si nos volvemos a un ethos de gratuidad. Contra la profesionalización del arte."
"El arte debe ser un espacio (otro) donde lo que se hace es perder dinero, no ganarlo."
"Hay que retornar a lo espiritual, recluirse, apartarse."
"Buscar zonas de silencio, contra el gran ruido del arte contemporáneo."

"Hay que recuperar la sensibilidad poética y la emoción en el arte."

A Chinese Folk Artist’s Descendants Are Split by the Government’s Use of Their Family Legacy



Clay figurines, made in a style recognized across China as historical folk art, are being used in a Communist propaganda campaign, “China Dream.” Relatives of the sculptor who founded the style and studio 200 years ago have objected to its appropriation.

Art at the heart of ecological transition

Art at the heart of ecological transition
At the international conference on climate COP21 (Conference of parties), which takes place between 29 November to 11 December 2015 in Paris, the second day brought together 150 heads of State about the question of the “last chance” to curb climate change. The whole of society, the art world included, is acting. While culture has been recognized by the UN as three complimentary pillars of sustainable development-social, economic and environmental- the UN conference is accompanied by an extensive cultural program. This massive commitment of institutions and artists seems to mark a turning point in the mobilization of society against climate change and a new step for the holistic of contemporary art.
