A developing consciousness of interconnectedness—along with the increasing mobility of artists, who created international networks of people and ideas—projected modernist work into the world. Avant-garde movements developed virally, through international networks. This sense of international discovery fed artists’ imaginations. Blaise Cendrars’s La Prose du Transsibérien et de la petite Jehanne de France is characteristic in this respect. The poet describes a trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway, a fantastic journey around half of the globe that keeps folding back to Paris. The map of Russia with the railroad above the title places the whole poem under the spell of this globetrotting discovery. Furthermore, the modernist magazine, a collective endeavor, often presents art and literature from different countries, sometimes in more than one language. Magazines circulated around the world and facilitated contact among artists, functioning as material traces of virtual networks.
