EUROPE WITHOUT WALLS: ART, POSTERS AND REVOLUTION, 1989-93. Ed. by James Aulich and Tim Wilcox. Manchester City Art Galleries, 1993. Organized in association with Visiting Arts and Goethe-Institut, Manchester. 208 pp. with 175 ills. (49 col.). 24 x 18 cm. ISBN 0901673447 In English.
Illuminating the involvement of Eastern European and Russian artists in the political upheavals of 1989 as well as their responses to subsequent developments in their homelands, this catalogue presents an anthology of ten diverse essays discussing such topics as the current role of posters and other public art works as vehicles of social and political commentary in Germany and the Czech Republic, the varied artistic climates in Hungary, Romania and Yugoslavia during the 1970s and 80s, the dislocation of art institutions and artistic values in eastern Germany following the fall of the Communist regime, the activities of the Czech avant-garde group the Stunners from 1986 to 1992, and the history of a monumental sculpture of Lenin unveiled in East Berlin in 1970 and dismantled in 1991. Accompanying the texts are illustrations of scores of recent paintings, posters, installations, political cartoons and other works reflecting the often satirical attitudes of Eastern European artists toward the ideologies of both socialism and capitalism.
