Something Altogether Weirder: A Meeting On Metamodernism With Timotheus Vermeulen
31 mei 2018, 20.00 uur
“Postmodernism is dead, but something altogether weirder has taken its place.”
Adrian Searle, art critic (2009)
In their 2008 milestone essay Notes on Metamodernism, Timotheus Vermeulen en Robin van den Akker first sought to describe their idea of metamodernism, fostered by the feeling that postmodern discourses lost their critical value when it came to understanding contemporary arts, culture, aesthetics and politics. In the midst of an ecological, economic and (geo)political crisis, they (and many others) claimed that History did not come to an end, but had been rebooted, kick-started and was forced into a different direction or shape. What was needed was “a new language to put into words this altogether weirder reality and its still stranger cultural landscape”.
