The authors whose writings appear in Extending the Dialogue come from 12 different countries and represent a range of disciplines and interests: they are art historians, philosophers, cultural theorists and activists, critics, curators, and poets, with most of them falling into two or three of these categories. All have made important contributions to contemporary art and cultural production, art history writing, and critical thought within, and sometimes far beyond, the region once known, problematically, as “Eastern Europe”. The book offers a collection of urgencies and agencies in art history, art writing, and art and cultural production from across Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe. A survey of the pressing issues that stimulate the authors’ scholarly, curatorial, and cultural investments, the book provides a referential, if fragmented and incomplete, picture of current conditions of art and culture in the region.
