Summary/Abstract: „The emergent form of contemporary history of art studies is the result of globalization. Naturally, the question whether their solution is convincing, or not, constitutes a separate issue. Apparently, the history of art is endeavouring to tackle this problem and in doing so it resorts to, i.a. post-colonial studies. Although their sources and fundamental domain of research are situated in strictly historical, literary, philosophical and social science studies this type of research pursued by the history of art seems to be effective, as evidenced predominantly by a whole complex of history of art studies associated with a revision of modernism, its decentralisation, pluralisation, and a new geography of art” – Piotrowski claims. His text attempts to take a look at the art of Central-Eastern Europe within the context of the post-colonial theory and, first and foremost, the geography of art.
