This paper critically analyses what it calls a "methodological cosmopolitanism" of the "global" art world. Examining the narratives with which the process of globalisation in art has been described since the early 1990s, the paper suggests that despite shifting critical terms the institutional structure of the artworld remains tied to an unreconstructedly Kantian model of cosmopolitanism, for which Europe continues to function as the model of the universal.
