Parallel Chronologies

An Archive of East European Exhibitions

The online archive can be accessed here:

We started this project in 2009 with the aim to revisit the history of
East-European art in the second half of the 20th century, by focusing—within the progressive movements of 1960s and 1970s—on innovative
artistic practices which reinterpreted the notion of exhibition, as
well as on the political potential of these strategies. After various
stages and formats, the results of our research is now available in an
online archive that we keep developing with the contribution of
international experts.
