Summary/Abstract: The author presents a recent discussion on “global art history,” posing some specific questions, whether and in what way it could be created, what is the role of art historical post-colonial studies in such a project, as well as the so called comparative art history, especially dealing with a history of East European art. However, in the concluding remarks he suggests an alternative approach to the issue, called the alter-globalist art history, which at the same time would be a critique of the global Western cultural hegemony (though, different than post-colonial perspective), and the activist contribution to the constitution of contemporary political condition of the world, called “the global agoraphilia.”
