9780745653822: Cosmopolitanism and Culture

Today, more than at any other point in history, we are aware of the cultural impact of global processes. This has created new possibilities for the development of a cosmopolitan culture but, at the same time, it has created new risks and anxieties linked to immigration and the accommodation of strangers.

This book examines how the images of the terrorist and the refugee, by being dispersed across almost all aspects of social life, have resulted in the production of ‘ambient fears’, and it explores the role of artists in reclaiming the conditions of hospitality. Since 9/11 contemporary artists have confronted the issues of globalization by creating situations in which strangers can enter into dialogue with each other, collaborating with diverse networks to forms new platforms for global knowledge. Such knowledge does not depend upon the old model of establishing a supposedly objective and therefore universal framework, but on the capacity to recognize, and mutually negotiate, situated differences. From artworks that incorporate new media techniques to collective activism Papastergiadis claims that there is a new cosmopolitan imaginary that challenges the conventional divide between art and politics. Through the analysis of artistic practices across the globe this book extends the debates on culture and cosmopolitanism from the ethics of living with strangers to the aesthetics of imagining alternative visions of the world.

Timely and wide-ranging, this book will be essential reading for students and scholars in sociology and cultural studies and will be of interest to anyone concerned with the changing forms of art and culture in our contemporary global age.

About the Author:

Nikos Papastergiadis is professor of cultural studies and media at University of Melbourne

Review:

'Like a good teacher, Papstergiadis has the knack of distilling difficult ideas into clear sharp images.'
Broadsheet

'Defining cosmopolitanism as referring to the social transformation that arises from the mixture of different cultures, Papastergiadis adopts the role of translator and mediator, establishing new dailogues and transcending disputes. Adding to formalist, biographical and social modes of art history, Papastergiadis's cosmopolitan approach introduces new readings where art becomes a medium for constituting the social.'
Art & Australia

'Cosmopolitanism and Culture is a book of hope. It shows how art and artists can contribute to an aesthetic cosmopolitanism that does not merely reflect difference in the world, but rather provides a way of creating something new from the acknowledgement of, and dealings with, situated differences.'
The Australian Educational Researcher

'Why read another discussion about cosmopolitanism, even as brilliant, informed and impassioned as this one is? Because, as the foremost scholar and participant observer of the vibrant and much debated movement of art collectives and collaborations, Papastergiadis takes the reader into an arena of aesthetic imaginaries practised, where the crucial experiments in cosmopolitanism as a redeemed form of cultural translation are happening.'
George Marcus, University of California, Irvine

'This compelling book opens up once again the whole question of the social imagination. This is the context in which Papastergiadis begins to effect a paradigm shift in the understanding of art and creative industries in our increasingly cosmopolitan global culture.'
Scott Lash, Goldsmith College, University of London
