The “East Art Map” of the Slovenian artist group IRWIN is the impulse behind the project’s attempt to reflect on the (inter-)relationships between contemporary art in eastern and western Europe. With an eye on the transnational aspects of such relations, the symposium will debate the (re-)construction of art history and the politics of representation. The interdisciplinary symposium is designed to provide the platform for productive exchange between academics, artists, and the public. In this way, the symposium will function as a launch pad for a permanent “triangular” cooperation model between these three groupings.

Project leadership and coordination: Prof. Dr. Marina Gržinić, Ljubljana/Wien, Prof. Dr. Günther Heeg and Dr. Veronika Darian, Leipzig.
