Session Description:

How might we talk about the contemporary return of forms that either resemble or directly cite modernism in ways that avoid pointing toward a process of repetition that locates history, time, aesthetics, and thought as fixed upon a simple chronolinear plane? This rountable examines the discontinuous time, temporality, and periodizing significance of modernism after modernism.
