The Art Newspaper (Guenter)

The Art Newspaper has been in existence since 1990. It is published from New York and London. For those of you who are familiar with it, you know that is it a newspaper for the art world. The stories range from investigative to advocacy. You can now find it online, including archives. They report on old art, new art, decorative art, the commercial and the non-commercial world. The Art Newspaper is now online, too. You can still subscribe to the paper, but you can also setup an RSS (really simple syndication) feed on your computer so the news comes to you. At the online site there are also video clips of current happenings, under The Art Newspaper TV. You can subscribe to the complete digital version for 15 pounds (British) or $23.00 (US) or you can read key stories on the web site for free to get a feel for what is happening with art around the world.
The lead story in today's paper is about how advertising agencies are taking advantage of recent changes with the laws in Venice to sell ad space and display big advertisements on the old, architecturally-rich, famous buildings and in the well-known public squares, such as St. Mark's. Talk about historical cultural contexts! This situation alone offers multiple opportunities for discussion, research and debate for you and your students.
