"East Art Map" website
“East Art Map” is going online. In the past few years, IRWIN,
supported by “New Moment” and working together with critics,
curators, and artists, has compiled a databank with information
on more than 200 artists and projects from eastern
Europe.The project “East Art Map” calls upon interested persons to
take part in constructing the history of and sketching an art
map of eastern Europe. The system is extremely simple:
a new project or a new artist can only then be included in the
map when an already captured data set is deleted at the same
time. The visitor to the website must justify this decision.
The changes made to the databank and the reasons given are
to be archived and made available on the website for discussion
until an international jury settles the final topography of
the “East Art Map”.
