  6. 7. THE GLOBAL TURN OF CONTEMPORARY ART IN BRAZILIAN COLLECTIONS <ul><li>The forum examined the global turn in contemporary art in different global contexts. The aim is to build up a body of comparative knowledge that can be duscussed and applied in a cross-culture perspective. (Global Art and the Museum-GAM Project, Hans Belting) </li></ul><ul><li>Two main questions for the Brazilian workshop: </li></ul><ul><li>What is the response to the global expansion of contemporary art in Brazil today? Does a Brazilian audience as yet have any experience of a new situation in what we call global art? Or is the dichotomy between international (Western) art and local Brazilian art production still prevailing? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the institutional presence of the contemporary? What role do museums play, as opposed to galleries and private collections? How do museums deal with the global turn in today’s art in their collection and exhibition policies? To what extent is contemporary Asian or African art present in Brazilian collections? </li></ul>
  7. 8. CONT .. <ul><li>Other aspects of the topic to be considered as far as </li></ul><ul><li>museums are concerned are: </li></ul><ul><li>The suppression of ethnic art, frequently to be observed as a result of a new global art production </li></ul><ul><li>The new museum geography and the agenda of newly founded contemporary art museums </li></ul><ul><li>Art history after Modernism (Belting) and global art history </li></ul><ul><li>The de-centralization of the concept of art </li></ul><ul><li>Most participants agreed that such an open discussion had not </li></ul><ul><li>happened before. They saw the global turn of contemporary </li></ul><ul><li>art as a stimulus to rethink the discussion about art and art </li></ul><ul><li>collections in Brazil. </li></ul><ul><li>See links: </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
