Contemporary Art in Eastern Europe (Artworld) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

From Russia to Poland and Romania, and from the Czech Republic to Yugoslavia and East Germany, Contemporary Art in Eastern Europe is an ambitious attempt to chart the changing realities of the eastern half of the continent, as seen through the eyes of artists, critics, photographers and curators. New paperback edition of the popular ARTWORLD series.

If the Iron Curtain and the antagonisms of the Cold War era had often kept the richness and diversity of Eastern European art hidden from the rest of the world, the contemporary era has been a witness to its unparalleled creative explosion and fruitful dialogue with the global art scene. The work featured in this book explores the correlations between shifts in the political, cultural, economic and geographical realities of Eastern Europe and the regions contemporary art. The artists in this book revisit the regions past to envision a better future, reaching challenging conclusions and creating some of the most powerful and inspiring art being produced today.

The book features essays from respected writers in the field and profiles the most influential artists producing work in and from the region today, including Marina Abramoviç, Christo, Krzysztof Wodiczko, Zofia Kulik, Komar and Melamid, IRWIN, Natalia Lach-Lachowicz, Alexander Brodsky, Ewa Partum, NSK, Group OHO, Stano Filko, Laibach, KwieKulik, Post Ars, Weekend Art, Zbigniew Libera, Marjetica Potrç, and Mladen Stilinovic.
