Art and Theory After Socialism (Book)
This book focuses on the overlap of art and everyday life post-cold war. It investigates what happens when theories of art from the former East and West collide, parsing the work of Soviet bloc artists alongside their western counterparts. The authors conclude that the liberation of the West fell prey to global conflict and high-risk situations.
