Presentation

Activity  around the exhibition Sumer and the Modern Paradigm

Lecture by Pedro Azara and Marc Marín

The exhibition does not cover all the artists and works that have been influenced by Mesopotamian art, nor is the scope of this influence limited to the narrative of the exhibition and what it shows. Other artists and other works also took an interest in this new “primitivism”, which was publicised and promoted by the media and archaeological missions. The talk offers an insight into these links.
