Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the history of modernism in Central Europe. It explains that Central European geography can be considered as myriad exchange events and situations across a field of cultural production with unique meanings generated in each immediate locale, resulting in a plurality of modernisms. The article argues that while the continual interplay between regional and cosmopolitan tendencies rendered meaning as highly contingent and based not infrequently on local authenticities, such locales were also defined by widely divergent social formations reflecting how political power was distributed.

Keywords: modernism, Central Europe, exchange events, cultural production, plurality, social formations, political power
