Changing Gear is an academic project that aims to shift the direction of Mediterranean Modern Art studies. The aim is to create a more holistic and inclusive study. This will be accomplished by introducing new conceptual categories, redefining regional contexts, and by revising methodological analysis.
Revision of methodological analysis
Changing Gear will investigate the power relationship between the vertical-linear methodological approach in art historical studies and the novel horizontal approach being proposed by this project for the study of Mediterranean Modern Art
