Connections to Eastern Europe. Inke Arns: 'Avant-garde in the Rear-View Mirror: From Utopia under General Suspicion to a New Notion of the Utopian

The reasons for this paradigm shift can be found in the changing relationship to the notion of utopia, both in its political and its artistic connotation.
