Extending the Dialogue

 - Extending the Dialogue
A collective survey on the current conditions of art and culture in Central and Eastern Europe.
The contributors for this book come from twelve different countries and represent a range of disciplines and interests: their number includes art historians, philosophers, cultural theorists and activists, critics, curators, and poets, with most of them falling into two or three of these categories. All have made important contributions to contemporary art and cultural production, art history writing, and critical thought within, and sometimes far beyond, the region once known, problematically, as “Eastern Europe”. The book thus offers a collection of urgencies and agencies in art history, art writing, and art and cultural production from across this cultural and political geography. It is a survey of the pressing issues that stimulate these authors' scholarly, curatorial, and cultural investments and so provides a referential, if fragmented and incomplete, picture of the current conditions of art and culture in the region.
