Sample text

In the end, the ability to imagine is closely connected with the possibility of change, and this is the potential residing in all forms of cultural production. The process leading up to aesthetic journalism can be considered from both perspectives: as art being absorbed by the generalist media industry, or as journalism becoming a (common) art form, which ultimately could produce interesting developments. As discussed in the beginning of the chapter, both artists and journalists make use of aesthetics, and are well aware of it: in turn, any act of interpretation, even the most disinterested film or written piece is anything but neutral and is as being coded as a Hollywood movie (Nash 2008).

If journalistic practice is eternally involved in the dispute between ethics and power, art too pulses between two directions: aiming for a particular audience (the art audience), and pursuing something beyond the artistic field. Artists strive to get things more real than reality, more influential than politics, more relevant than economics. They are permanently on the edge between a call for elitism and an attempt to grasp forms of popularity, in the hunt for a critical mass. In particular, non-fiction works by artists are quite often uncritically exchanged for reliable information, and artists themselves tend to proceed in a ‘neutral’ way in order to validate their work.
