Summary/Abstract: Yugoslav-Czechoslovakian cooperation in the field of art was a very important link for cooperation of the two countries which were already similar in structure, formation and de-velopment. Both saw their first postwar steps on the international scene in tighter bonds with similar states. Art played an important role in rapprochement. Several artists reached their prime on their performances in Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia, respectfully. However, there were unsuccessful performances, unnoticed in the public, criticized by the journalists and public institutions. Art meant much more that simple work and creating of something new. Through the art people communicated, while the exchange of the artists meant the exchange of the ideas. New ideas and new knowledge were reached. With every successful cultural manifestation, the cooperation of the two countries strengthened. Yugoslav-Czechoslovak cooperation in the field of art had its beginning in first unstable and fearful, but promising steps, but at the same time they reminded of unsuccess and its hard consequences. The artistic cooperation had its growth and peak in organization of great number of exhibition, shows and other spectacles of the artists of both countries, with visits of the artists, with establishment of cooperation in the field of film and the work of cultural societies. And finally, that cooperation had its fall and then a break-up, with closing of the last exhibition and the final curtain fell on the theatre scene.
