Joan Miro Foundation - The Sumer and the Modern Paradigm

The Sumer and the Modern Paradigm exhibition elicits a conversation between Mesopotamian art and the works of modern artists, particularly during the interwar period (1920-1945). At the same time, it aims to find an answer to the reasons for the modern fascination with the findings from the ancient Near East.
