What would be a history of modernity since the invention of prehistory, in the heart of the nineteenth century? What would it be if the narrative thread was woven by the successive interpretations of prehistory given by not only artists, but also philosophers, writers, historians, art historians, prehistorians and anthropologists? Can the modern uses of prehistory shed new light on the modern experience of time and, thus, the art of this period?
Maria Stavrinaki teaches the history of contemporary art at the University Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne. She works on crossroads between the art of modernity, the humanities and political thought and is particularly interested in the issues of time and the writing of history.
