Central and Eastern Europe:
A region without a past?

  • Central and Eastern Europe:

This panel seeks to address the consequences of exclusion of the tradition of engagement from official art-historical narratives after 1989.

What is the reason behind the marginalizing or otherwise biased approach to this tradition? Why has this part of the artistic heritage been suppressed from official narratives? How do reactions to this mostly unwanted heritage differ locally depending on socio-political conditions and historical circumstances? How does it influence institutional policies and exhibition practices in each of the countries? Finally, what experience can be gained from forgotten narratives and rejected traditions, and what can we learn from them today?


Registration for the conference events is required. The registration form will be launched one week before the event date. The number of participants is limited.

The application form will appear on this webpage on FRI, April 30, 2021, 8:00 AM
