Debate on contemporary art  ”The Soft Power of the Art Market” by Nasui private collection & gallery

Preview Berlin Lounge

Friday, September 14, 2012
5-6.30 pm



Radu Belcin catches attention by new associations of characters, or objects, in a chiaroscuro-painted atmosphere.

Francisc Chiuariu’s lattest series revolutionises the space of the painting, decomposing it in different layers: on the front oils, on the back typographic inks.

Bogdan Rața is a sculptor in search of new human genetic forms. He uses new materials as polystyrene, industrial paint, plaster, synthetic resin.

Aurel Tar is a post-pop visual artist, interested in the subtle mix of the cultural aspects of globalisation.

”The Soft Power of the Art Market” is a new East European fresh look at the systems that are now in charge of producing contemporary art in a globalized world. It reveals the challenges of the contemporary art as a soft power, defined by its geopolitical strategies and defined as an extension of the powerful global markets. The contemporary art between media and power is changing the equilibrium between the cultural capital and economic capital.

The idea of the New Folklore is introduced in terms of the new aesthetics for the XXI century. The new aesthetics of production and consumption (under the sign of the paradigms launched by Duchamp and Warhol) is nowadays generating a very large amount of cultural artistic products lost, in a very accelerated manner. This speed and this amount lead to an unexpectedly anonymity, thus generating not individual specific creation but general, collective types of artistic work – actually a new type of folklore.


The debate (the reactions from the public) will be recorded and written down, for a further material. The same type of debate will be also held during Liverpool Biennial 2012 and further on in different international contexts (2012-2013). All the recorded materials will make the object of a future book with this title and all the contexts of the debates will be mentioned accordingly.
