This volume surveys experimental art made in six Central Eastern European nations – GDR, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania and Yugoslavia – between the 1960s and 1980s. Embracing conceptual or formal innovation and a spirit of adventurousness, the book sheds light on the ways that artists refused, eluded and subverted official systems. While it includes canonical figures, the book focuses on lesser known-practitioners (women-artists, artists-collectives, queer artists).

Despite their geographical proximity, artists working in these nations during this time encountered different conditions for daily life and art-making, confronting varying degrees of control and pressure exerted by state authorities. While it presents select canonical figures from the region, the exhibition foregrounds lesser-known practitioners, particularly women artists, artist collectives and those exploring embodiment through an LGBTQ+ lens.

Designed by Melbourne designers Ziga Testen and Kim Mumm Hansen from Graphic Design Work.

Artists include: Milan Adamčiak, Autoperformationsartisten, AWACS, Lubomír Beneš, Sándor Benkö, A.E.
