Within a predominantly geographic and chronological framework he studies each region, analyzing individual art works within their cultural contexts. He also points out the increasing interrelation between the various cultures during the 20th century and into the 21st, as well as the influence of postcolonialism, postmodernism, and internationalism on the creation of new hybrid art forms.
