Feature article on possibilities of Romanticism in contemporary art.

Is Romantic a dirty word?
If Romanticism is making a return within recent art practices, how have critical artists such as John Akomfrah, Tacita Dean and Jon Rafman rescued it from the charge of aesthetic and political conservatism?

'Charles Baudelaire and Gustave Courbet moved beyond lingering Romantic aesthetics and sensibilities to forge the possibilities of the more modern Realism which we still regard as a touchstone or birthplace of critical art.'
