Imperial expositions held in fin-de-siecle London, Paris and Berlin were knots in a world wide web. Conceptualizing expositions as meta-media, Fleeting Cities constitutes a transnational and transdisciplinary investigation into how modernity was created and displayed, consumed and disputed in the European metropolis around 1900.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book is a stunning achievement. ... The whole volume is full of insights, as the reader is taught how to read an exposition, as existing chronologies (not least the belief that exhibitions declined in popularity) are challenged and overturned, and as Geppert offers new ways of conceptualising the whole process, uncovering transnational links and exploring these places as sites for an urban modernity in ways that other authors have hitherto scarcely touched on." (William Whyte, English Historical Review, February, 2016)

"Geppert not only invites us to look beyond exhibitions as vessels of imperial propaganda, but also adds depth to our understanding of them with his theorised account on the spatial element of world exhibitions." (Matthijs Kuipers, European Review of History, Vol. 22 (6), August, 2015)
