This publication contains the study carried out by Juan Guardiola about what he calls “Modern India”. Its intention was to contribute to the history of the artistic tradition of a little known country, despite the great number of creators who made themselves known in the contemporary scene as a result of the very widespread “dienalization” of art. As an exposition, the project was divided into an introduction and five chronological historical areas where is presented a journey through the colonial past and the global present in India. These are made from texts, documentary objects, archival materials and artistic proposals; interpreting the idea of India as a laboratory of creation and cultural transfer at a global scale. Juan Guardiola argues that this book aims to be a space for reflection about the cultural processes and practices of the Indian imaginary in the symbolic space of the western territory.
