It was as early as 1920, while collecting his famous essays in a book – Vision and Design – that was to exert a huge impact on the Western artistic culture to come, that Roger Fry postulated his famous theory of the importance of form over content in the modern work of art. While form addressed a system of perception that was basically sensorial, content was directed to a "restricted", logical and cognitive system. It was in this context that Fry mentioned with nonchalance a new kind of display aimed at altering the museum system as a whole.
