Einsteins significance for avant-garde aesthetics and his role in primitivism are probed in light of recent approaches to avant-garde studies, such as post-colonialism and the spatial turn. The volume explores consonances, dissonances, shared and hidden agendas, and contributes to a mapping of some less familiar dimensions of Einstein and those movements of which he was both a part and an avid critic.
