Realisms of the Avant-Garde
Ed. by Baßler, Moritz / Hjartarson, Benedikt / Frohne, Ursula / Ayers, David / Bru, Sascha
Aims and Scope
The historical avant-gardes defined themselves largely in terms of their relationship to various versions of realism. At first glance modernism primarily seems to take a counter-position against realism, yet a closer investigation reveals that these relations are more complex. This book is dedicated to the links between realism, modernism and the avant-garde in their international context from the late 19th century up to the present day.
