Content

The present volume investigates the process of global art production and art consumption and the extend to which it is prompting a critical revaluation of the notion of mainstream art. The project GAM – Global Art and the Museum was initiated by ZKM | Center for Arts and Media Karlsruhe, Germany, with the aim to explore the impact of art’s globalization on art museums, their audiences and the art market. Whereas the art market, like its new clientele of collectors from many parts of the world, acts on a global scale, art museum, but also ethnographic museums, operate within a local framework where they encounter audiences from most diverse cultures and societies.
