Critical realism in contemporary art: around Allan Sekula's photography
What is the place of Critical Realism today, given the fact that both realism and commitment in art have become highly problematic notions since at least several decades? Realism in the first place appears to be relegated to the museum of premodern styles and devices, safely locked-up in the toolbox of 19th-Century art history. Secondly, in our cool, postmodern times, the place for commitment has become highly confuse. The naive confusion between Critical Realism and notions like Social(ist) Realism or Political Correctness has complexified that situation.
