Industry, craft, modern architecture, and regional identity at the Paris 1925 and 1937 International Expositions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Argues for the complex way in which the dichotomies of craft/industry and provinces/capital interacted in the representations of the French regions at Parisian international expositions between 1900-40. The growing visibility of French regions at the 1925 and 1937 fairs did not easily correspond to an understanding of provincial as necessarily anti-modern and the capital as modern and avant-garde; rather, the mapping of modernity and modernism was much more nuanced amongst the geographic identities within France in the early twentieth century.
