Descentralized Modernities. Art, politics and counterculture in the transatlantic axis during the Cold War.
Decentralized Modernities is a project from the Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad of Spain. The project centres around two main axes of study. Firstly, the analysis of the discursive narratives of modernity as shaped by artistic practices and aesthetic and critical discourses. Such analysis is also taking into account the role of institutions and exhibitions in the formation of modernist practices in the different contexts across the transatlantic world during the Cold War. Secondly, the study of the influence and the role of these transatlantic configurations in the transition from modernity to post-modernity and their ongoing presence in today’s global world.
