Artistic creativity is fuelled by the permanent interaction among artistic forms, cultures, societies, and eventually different individuals, in the form of an all-inclusive intertextuality. The dialogues between the past and the present help the artist examine his own art, making him conscious of his position in the field, whether through self-evaluation, renewal or experiment with new textualities. This book explores how the strategies reflecting the exchanges between past and present modes of artistic production become active agents of intervention in creating the various spaces of dialogue and confrontation when establishing the identities and cultural specificity of a certain society or community.
