The Leibniz-Institute for the History and Culture of Eastern Europe (GWZO), with joint support from the Terra Foundation for American Art and the Getty Foundation through its Connecting Art Histories initiative, is launching a new series of traveling research seminars to explore relationships between the U.S. and East-Central European art scenes after 1945.
Led by Dr. Beáta Hock, “Linking Art Worlds: American Art and Eastern Europe in the Cold War to the Present” re-examines national art histories from a transnational and interdisciplinary perspective, also implicating socio-historical and political factors underpinning artistic practice. The project takes the form of five extended meetings of seminars, lectures, site visits and writing workshops. The seminars will be held in Prague, Budapest (Central European Research Institute for Art History (KEMKI) - Artpool Art Research Center), Berlin/Leipzig, New York and Giverny (France) between 2022 and 2024.
Places are available for ca. fifteen junior fellows predominantly from East, Central and Southeastern Europe but also from the United States and other European countries.
