Seminar “Constructing New Worlds. 1914-1945”
Saturday. 11:00 to 19.00 Auditorium
24 October 2015
During this chronological framework that includes the two world conflicts, we can easily state that we are witnessing the consolidation of artistic modernity. This phenomenon was more intense in those countries that saw their old political and social structures falter. This large proposal for an exhibition with almost a thousand pieces takes back a group of greatly talented artists, especially those who were active and young at the time (with a relevant participation of women) who were committed not only to modern art (most of them moved to central cultural spots such as Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam or Zurich and they participated in international exhibitions) but also to the structural reforms in accordance with the idealistic spirit of the time.
