Synopsis:

This comprehensive, international examination of the Modernist movement across all the arts is now available in paperback.

 

Between 1914 and 1939, Modernism flourished through the work of creative visionaries who believed in the transformative power of art on society and its ability to shape a better world. The first book of its kind, Modernism: Designing a New World approaches one of the most important movements of the 20th century from a truly international perspective and reveals the scope of Modernism’s impact across all the arts.

 

Christopher Wilk reveals the fundamental ways in which Modernism has continued to shape our world and its visual culture and illustrates the extensive reach of the movement.

About the Author: Christopher Wilk is Keeper of Furniture, Textiles, and Fashion at the V&A. He was formerly curator at MOMA and the Brooklyn Museum of Art in New York.
