Sample text

The first volume seeks to establish the parameters of indigenous visual culture, and with this approach he continuously turns to terminology from the fields of aesthetics, anthropology, history, and art history: abstraction, meanings, mythic content, functions, conquest, colonization, colonies, baroque, and so on.

Other books by Hadjinicolaou followed, such as his L’ouvre d’art face à ses significations (also in a Spanish edition by Siglo XXI in 1981).
