Novelist, critic, and modernism enthusiast Gabriel Josipovici on The Marketplace of Ideas this Sunday

This week on The Marketplace of Ideas, Colin Marshall talks to
Gabriel Josipovici
, author of many novels and critical essays involved with the aesthetics and techniques of modernism. In his latest book, What Ever Happened to Modernism?, he traces modernism’s roots further back in history than perhaps any other scholar of modernism has done before. It’s all in the service of the titular question, which expresses a deep concern of anyone who enjoys modernist works today: how and why has the Western world so largely ignored the excitement and potential of modernist art, that is, art conscious of its own limits and responsibilities?

The Marketplace of Ideas airs every Sunday afternoon at 1:00.
