This is a pressing question about how one might live now as well as a continuing inquiry into what kind of modernity is most suitable to present circumstances. Indeed, in many parts of the world—notably much of Asia, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East—posing it hastens responses to the challenges of contemporary life. It is, therefore, a question for the world. How does this kind of questioning manifest itself in contemporary art?
