Ranging from early twentieth century modernist appropriations of non-western art through to the ways in which Mexican muralists in the 1930s negotiated European avant-gardist strategies, and then up to contemporary installation and lens-based practices during the current period of globalisation, this book seeks to understand selected moments in the art of the last one hundred years through the prism of postcolonialism.
