Flores.
“In order to propose a “world history” and to honor all the productions from all the continents, especially those that have been so far despised, the best would be to articulate a world-wide narrative. We need an narrative, not only emancipatedfrom the hierarchies that belong to the canon (old/modern, fine arts/crafts, kitsch/classical), but also a narrative that goes beyond the production of hierarchies, from which even the postcolonial narrative has difficulties to escape (dominant/dominated). How to produce a narrative that, in addition, connects “local” collections and “international” collections, keeping at the same time a link between both of them?” (Béatrice Joyeux-Prunel, Introduction, “L’histoire mondiale de l’art, au défi d’un grand récit”).
