On the emergence of global art history
What is it about?
This is a review of Hiroko Ikegami's book The Great Migrator. Robert Rauschenberg and the Global Rise of American Art.
Why is it important?
Ikegami's closely researched book is a very important example of the emergence of world art history. I argue that the official institutional cross-atlantic collaboration should ideally be supplemented by the self-organised gobal networks of the avant-garde movements.
