The revisionary trends of recent scholarship have expanded the focus on modernism along geopolitical lines. Revising the historical parameters of modernism is a necessary concomitant to experiencing this historical phenomenon as a rolling thunder, its effects precipitated across a wide range of cultural formations in varying degrees of intensity and over a longer period than is evoked by such catch-phrases as “the men of 1914.” Modernism is the exponential expansion of the “permanent revolution” of romanticism, understood as the initiative to demand an uncompromising singularity from artworks in any medium, with the proviso that each work is obliged to manifest its own aesthetic charter.
