Modernist Network Cymru (MONC) is a new national modernist studies network. Inspired by its sister organisation the Scottish Network of Modernist Studies, the network aims to bring together scholars and professionals working on modernism in Wales to encourage better collaboration and communication. The group includes, but is not limited to, the study of Welsh modernism. In order to be as inclusive as possible, we define modernism broadly as literary, artistic, musical and cultural responses to modernity, predominately (but not exclusively) in the first half of the twentieth century. We are an interdisciplinary network and welcome both members who work on ‘High Modernism’ as it is traditionally defined and those who work on modern popular culture, the middlebrow, or conceptions of modernity more generally.

The exhibition organized by the National Museum in Warsaw and the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando in Madrid is dedicated to a central figure in the Polish avant-garde and modern movement, Tadeusz Peiper, poet, theatre writer, theoretician – and to the artistic and literary relations between avant-garde movements in Poland and Spain during the first decades of the 20th century. Tadeusz Peiper has been one of the central figures of the Avant-garde in Central Europe. What is little known, however, is that he had been formed as a thinker and writer in Madrid in the years 1915-1920, where he had been part of the Polish circle of artists active within the Ultraist movement. After his return to Poland in 1920-21 his esthetic ideas have influenced poetry, painting, photomontage, film and theater in his homeland. Peiper was instrumental in bringing about the influential magazine Zwrotnica, produced in collaboration with constructivist painter Wladyslaw Strzeminski and others , had been close with leading figures of the avant-garde, including Vincente Huidobro, Kazimir Malevich, Juan Gris, Fernand Leger, and others.

"Impossible Histories is the first critical survey of the extraordinary experiments in the arts that took place in the former Yugoslavia from the country's founding in 1918 to its breakup in 1991. The combination of Austro-Hungarian, French, German, Italian, and Turkish influences gave Yugoslavia's avant-gardes a distinct character unlike those of other Eastern and Central European avant-gardes. Censorship and suppression kept much of the work far from the eyes and ears of the Yugoslav people, while language barriers and the inaccessibility of archives caused it to remain largely unknown to Western scholars. Even at this late stage in the scholarly investigation of the avant-garde, few Westerners have heard of the movements Belgrade surrealism, signalism, Yugo-Dada, and zenitism; the groups Alfa, Exat 51, Gorgona, OHO, and Scipion Nasice Sisters Theater; or the magazines Danas, Red Pilot, Tank, Vecnost, and Zvrk."

The exhibition Circles of Interference, a collaborative effort between Collection Marinko Sudac, Kassak Museum and Institute for the Research of the Avant-garde, is based on the exchange and cooperative work between the editors of the avant-garde periodicals MA and Zenit, two that were among the most influential in the region at the beginning of the 1920's. The exhibition covers the issues of networking and expansion of the avant-garde movement and the esthetic of Constructivism that, in between the two wars, had a strong and productive impact on the cultural life of the region. The artworks displayed and the documentation as a whole were selected from the permanent body of works from the Collection. The intention was to reveal the high artistic level of a neglected legacy of historical avant-garde movements to the public and critical eye and to place emphasis on the so far insufficiently recognized channels through witch radical artistic practice and esthetics of the constructivists has grown to become a decisive influence on the art practices from the second half of the 20th century.
