This publication contributes to the reexamination and questioning of the role of culture and art during this period and proposes a fresh reading of the role played by artists, art critics, cultural agents and exhibitions in the tricontinental space (constituted by the Americas, Southern Europe and Africa) in the creation of transnational cultural networks, dissident geographies and global structures. Questioning the historiographic constructions of the Cold War focused for a long time on the bipolar confrontation between the Western and Soviet blocs, it seeks to contribute to a new cartography of artistic practices taking into account its collaborations (and tensions) with political practices, through a reading from the Atlantic and the global South.
