From Russia to Poland and Romania, and from the Czech Republic to Yugoslavia and East Germany, "Contemporary Art in Eastern Europe" is an ambitious attempt to chart the changing realities of the eastern half of Europe as seen through the eyes of artists, critics, photographers and curators.

If the Iron Curtain and the antagonisms of the Cold War era had often kept the richness and diversity of Eastern European art hidden from the rest of the world, the contemporary era has been a witness to its unparalleled creative explosion and fruitful dialogue with the global art scene. The work featured in this book explores the correlations between shifts in the political, cultural, economic and geographical realities of Eastern Europe and the region's contemporary art. The artists in this book revisit the region's past to envision a better future, reaching challenging conclusions and producing some of the most powerful and inspiring art being produced today.
