How should we understand post-war art? How were issues of cultural transfer and curatorial strategies dealt with in the extended 1960s – the era of pop? These questions and others are addressed by international scholars working within a research area coined horizontal art history (Piotr Piotrowski), in a new anthology from Södertörn University which is released at Moderna Museet. In the volume, this intense period in art is addressed in new perspectives.
