Historical narratives are never objective, and they all have a certain ideology with an implicit (or even explicit) idea lying behind them. Art history narratives are both political and performative: they shape our perception of the phenomenon called ‘art’ as a succession of styles, artists and masterpieces. The past of art is constantly recreated and reinvented from the present of an art historian. Within the field of art history, the case of the history of architecture is, probably, the most complicated because architecture is a public phenomenon par excellence, and its implementation and interpretation are often socially and politically engaged.
