Cult of Progress


David Olusoga

In Part One, ‘First Contact’, David Olusoga explores the role of art in the earliest interaction and conflict between different civilizations, beginning with the Age of Discovery when Europe’s early imperialists encountered the indigenous peoples and art of other continents: contacts that resulted in mutual curiosity as well as conquest. Part Two, 'The Cult of Progress', looks at artistic reaction to post-industrial modernization in the 19th and early 20th centuries, ending with Otto Dix’s great triptych, The War (1932).
