This event celebrates the launch of /Art and Theory of Post-1989 Central 
and Eastern Europe: A Critical Anthology/, which takes the political 
changes during the pivotal years between 1989 and 1991 as its starting 
point, reflecting on the disintegration of socialist states across 
Central and Eastern Europe and its impact on art, theory, and criticism 
over the last 30 years. This book is the product of 10 years of C-MAP 
research initiatives at The Museum of Modern Art in the fields of 
Central and Eastern European art and theoretical studies, and its launch 
brings together the anthology’s editors with distinguished contributors.

   * Introductory remarks by Roxana Marcoci, Senior Curator, Department
     of Photography, and C-MAP Leader for Central and Eastern Europe, MoMA
   * Keynote by philosopher and cultural theorist Boris Buden
   * Roundtable with Claire Bishop, Professor of Art History, The
     Graduate Center, CUNY; Boris Buden; and artist Alexandra Pirici.
     Introduced by Ksenia Nouril, former C-MAP Fellow for Central and
     Eastern Europe, and moderated by Ana Janevski, Curator, Department
     of Media and Performance Art, MoMA
   * Lecture-performance by artist and writer Payam Sharifi of the art
     collective Slavs and Tatars
   * Audience Q&A with all participants and editors

The fall of the Berlin Wall and the social and political transformations 
that followed, from Bucharest to Prague to Moscow, marked a significant 
moment when artists were able to publicly reassess their histories and 
to question the opposition between East and West that defined the Cold 
War era. Featuring key voices that span the post-transition period, from 
the early 1990s to the present, this book makes an indispensable 
contribution to our understanding of modern and contemporary art from 
the region, with particular focus on the work of a new generation of 
artists, scholars, and curators who offer fresh perspectives while 
rewriting their own histories.
