Throughout time people have been compelled to record and share ‘news’ from cave drawings to citizen journalism. Aesthetic Journalism is an exhibition that explores the seemingly incompatible components such as aesthetic experience and political activism; community events and private investigations. The exhibition puts forward the idea that art and journalism are not separate forms of communication, but rather two sides of a unique activity; the production and distribution of information.

Artists include, among others: Sammy Baloji, Eric Baudelaire, Renzo Martens, Katya Sander, Hito Steyerl and Walid Raad/The Atlas Group.
