Keywords: Central and Eastern Europe; curatorial narratives; contemporary art; politics of memory; communist past.
Summary/Abstract: The article examines exhibitions of late socialist and post-socialist visual art from Central and Eastern Europe, which took place after 1989, as a possible medium for carrying and shaping memories of the recent past. The analysis focuses on the specific curatorial narratives that frame the artistic practices of “coming to terms with” the communist past, (re)negotiating post-communist identities, and re-positioning the former East in the new geographies of art. Five “ideal types” of curatorial narratives, by means of which contemporary art functions as ars memoriae, have been identified: the heroic, post-colonial, contextualizing, Europeanizing, and historicizing.
