Mediterranean Modernism : Intercultural Exchange and Aesthetic Development (Hardcover)
About this item
This book explores how Modernist movements all across the Mediterranean basin differed fromthose of other regions. The chapters show how the political and economic turmoil of a period marked by world war, revolution, decolonization, nationalism and the rapid advance of new technologies compelled artists, writers and other intellectuals to create a new hybrid Mediterranean Modernist aesthetic which sought to balance the tensions between local and foreign, tradition and innovation, andcolonial and postcolonial.
