Further Biographical Context for Cay Cedergren
Cay Cedergren was born in 1913 and was largely influenced by the 1930s. Internationally this period can be best characterised by the conflict between the world’s dominant political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. The era assumed a sinister turn with the beginning of National Socialism in Germany, and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. The decade would conclude in the inset on the Second World War; a political and social furore that preoccupied not only artists, but large swathes of the world’s population.
