Summary: “Representatives of the interwar modernist avant-garde not only worked across various artistic disciplines and in different media — they often viewed their artistic practice as direct interventions in other fields of human experience. These interventions were to be informed by knowledge derived from emerging scientific and humanistic disciplines, and were premised upon the possibility (and desirability) of interdisciplinary synthetic knowledge.
