An associative art history : comparative studies of neo-avant-gardes in a bipolar world

Tomáš Pospiszyl (Author, Editor), Clément Dirié (Editor), Vít Havránek (Editor), Iván Gutiérrez (Translator)
"This publication searches for the place of Czech, Slovak, and Eastern European postwar art in global history. Programmatically avoiding the repetition of the processes of Western canonization, its aim is not to fruitlessly compare Eastern and Western neo-avant-gardes and contemporary art practices, but to decipher the circumstances under which artworks are created, theorized, and how they communicate with one another. Tomas Pospiszyl enlists the history of contemporary Eastern Europe art by highlighting emblematic stories of the art scene protagonists, and mixing personal anecdotes with artistic agendas"--Publisher's website
