Armin Medosch - The Constructive Connection and Peripheral Modernity in former Yugoslavia and Latin America
The Other Transatlantic. Theorizing Kinetic & Op Art in Central & Eastern Europe and Latin America
"The Other Transaltantic. Kinetic & Op Art in Central & Eastern Europe and Latin America" is a project in which we look at a brief, but historically significant moment in the post-war period (between 50s and 70s) when the trajectories of the Central and Eastern European art scenes on the one hand and their Latin American counterparts on the other converged in the shared enthusiasm for Kinetic and Op Art.
