The project sheds light on the visual art, film, photography and video that have grown up in Eastern and Central Europe and the former Soviet Union, during the decade after perestroika and the fall of the Berlin Wall. In collaboration with the cultural ministries of the countries involved and with Soros Cultural Centres, the project will be presented as an exhibition, book and a symposium. The purpose of the project is to define the present situation in terms of the changes that have taken place and the scope of this changes in the respective countries.... The symposium is arranged in cooperation with the Swedish Institute/Partnership for Culture. The exhibition will be highly selective and only pieces shown on a qualitative basis will be exhibited.
