The early decades of the 20th century were marked by a series of turbulent political upheavals, from revolutions in Russia and Mexico to unprecedented leftist radicalism across Europe and America. This talk examines the dynamic relations between art and revolution, exploring the ways in which artists working across the aesthetic spectrum, from realism through to the new abstraction, sought to participate actively in the fight for political change, engaging culture as a means of transforming society.
