Through creations by more than eighty artists, including Joan Miró, Marcel Duchamp, Otto Freundlich, Pablo Picasso, Wassily Kandinsky and Jean Dubuffet, this book shows how, in the context of scarcity and oppression during the 1940s, artists proposed new solutions that fundamentally changed the form and content of art. An alphabet of more than 200 entries ,from ?abstraction? to ?hipster?, ?censorship?, ?society life? and ?resistance? sheds new light on the artistic issues of that time, linking closely to social and political history.
