Taking the years between 1905 and 1965 as the temporal frame, this conference sought to rethink Global Modernisms from a transregional perspective. Current conceptualizations of avantgardism and formal innovation often related to places like Paris, New York, Weimar or Moscow continue to inform Global Modernisms’ intellectual field. Global Modernisms are often presented as a symptom for new Westernism that masquerades as the universal. This conference sought a more constitutive conceptual vision.

The following interviews and contributions have emerged from the conference:
