Art and Visual Culture of Eastern Europe

The SocialEast Forum is a platform for innovative, transnational research on the art and visual culture of Eastern Europe that was established by Maja and Reuben Fowkes (Translocal) in 2006. Based on active collaboration with institutes of art history across Europe and the involvement of prominent academics, curators and artists, SocialEast is an internationally-recognised generator of innovative research into the contemporary art history of Eastern Europe.

Documentation of the SocialEast seminars, including video and sound recordings, are available in the Translocal Archive.
