Art Exhibitions as intersections in Post War Europe

This international conference seeks to address the art exhibition as a site of international relations and a mirror of society across East and West Europe during the post war period.

Scholars of art history and exhibition studies are increasingly investigating the role of art institutions in the circulation of art, in post war Europe. The movement of art between East and West Europe, and the heterogenic nature of contemporary art and exhibitions during the cold war period, have come into focus.

This international conference seeks to address the art exhibition as a site of international relations and a mirror of society across East and West Europe during the post war period. We seek researchers interested in the myriad of exhibitions revealed from institutional archives, avoiding stereotypical focus on landmark exhibitions. The aim is to present a heterogenic history of art, movement of artists, and collaborations facilitating exhibitions during the post war period.
