A fascinating line-up of artistic avant-gardes of Asia, Europe and the Arab World including Japan, Korea, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Palestine and Egypt who use writing as part of their practice. Artistic exchanges on this subject already took place in the mid-20th century, when artists devoted to Art Informel sought contact with Asia. In Asia, artists are shaking off the constraints of prescribed characters and approaching script in a more abstract way. There is now a global language of written art and this survey demonstrates the power, origins and development of the art form.
