The contamination and encounter between the art world and the mediatic world isn't new.
It is a never-ending debate born and developed together with the electronic media: from the early days of radio and cinema until nowadays.
But what happen when we talk about the media industry? What happen when a group of artists, writers, intellectuals is invited to deal with the contemporary media industry production system? It is what Alfredo Cramerotti and Khaled Ramadan of the Chamber of Public Secrets collective did within the frame of Manifesta8 in Spain.
CPS isn't a formal structure, do not have an official founding date or a fixed agenda, it is an horizontal group, an ensemble of discussion and critical thinking and it is one of the curatorial teams of the roaming biennale. We talked with Cramerotii about CPS, about their curatorial method, their invitation to deal with the production structures of the media industry for the creation of artistic projects.
