Taking into account different countries, but also extremely diverse artists and aesthetics, the catalogie plunges us into the core of the exceptional diversity of art forms created betweens 1905 and 1970: from painting to photography to sculpture...

The authors - curators and academics - who have contributed to this book analyze the complex and dynamic relationships between the concepts of universality and vernacular culture, purity and hybridity, inherent to modern art. Showing minglings and convergence between different arts, they also show the interaction of modern art with traditional practices and non-artistic expressions.
