Friday, May 31, 2019

This panel explores the power of image culture in shaping the visual identity of twentieth-century transatlantic vanguardisms. Since the inception of European experimentalism during the first decades of the twentieth century, a series of art movements engaged in radical art production that defied conventions. From the Cubist adoption of multiple viewpoints, through the Futurist celebration of technology and speed, the Expressionist distortion of form, to the Dadaist sense of provocation and the irrational juxtaposition of images in Surrealism, visual art has set precedents for literature on an international level of exchanges.
