Example text

In other words, the goal is to separate the two terms so often used together: Western modern art and universal art, by relativizing and locating Western narration – in accordance with the principles of horizontal art history – in relation to other art historic narrations. One of the consequences of such a move would be, or rather should be, a rejection of a traditional view of the relationship between ‘our’ (Western) art history and art history of the Others. Although it appears self-evident that modern art of the Others developed under the influence of the West, the opposite, namely the question of the influence of non-Western art on the history of Western art, or, to be more precise, on the perception of Western art, seems much less obvious.

Juxtaposition of post-communist and postcolonial studies is also problematic from a historic point of view. At the time when the so-called Third 46 1989: The Spatial turn World was engaged in its struggles for independence from Europe, Stalinism gripped East Central Europe. India gained its independence in 1947. A year later the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia took over full control of the country’s public life. This was also the year when ‘hard-line’ cultural policies were introduced in Poland.

Although it was difficult for artists to maintain contact with the Western art scene, the art produced in the region remained unmistakably European. The artists were Europeans even though they faced considerable difficulties travelling through Europe. Yet if one were to apply the vertical perspective to the culture of East Central Europe, it would be impossible to discern specific meanings of art produced there. This is because art in Eastern Europe developed under completely different historic conditions, though from a strictly geographic perspective, as for instance in East Berlin, it was created a stone’s throw away from the West.
