Publication of this title has has been cancelled. Publisher's description: Where do Eastern Europe and Turkey find themselves in the contemporary art world? Faced with globalization and ongoing political upheaval, these countries wrestle with cultural histories and memories while simultaneously attempting to carve out space in the new global art market. Joining AC Institute's forum for critical exchange and discussion, prominent writers, theorists, artists, curators, art historians and cultural critics from Turkey, Romania, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary, Belarus, the Ukraine and the Czech Republic discuss alternative ways of working that have arisen in the wake of current sociopolitical pressures. Instead of dwelling on the restraints, Open Systems teases out the alternative networks that have thrived nonetheless. Divided into four sections, the essays in this dense and stimulating volume touch on various subjects such as curating as a kind of conversation, the political dimension of art documentation in Turkey, and the problem of decolonializing artistic perspectives, along with much more.
