Conference series

The post-World War II socialism and related art historical discourse had many faces: too many for a single conference. Therefore we have launched a series of conferences, the first of which will be held in Tallinn in October 2016, focusing on the decades immediately following the war. In 2017 and 2018 follow-up conferences will be held in Leipzig and Berlin.


Board of the conference series:

Marina Dmitrieva, Dr. (Centre for History and Culture of East Central Europe, Leipzig University)

Krista Kodres, Prof. Dr. (Estonian Academy of Arts; Tallinn University)

Michaela Marek, Prof. Dr. (Humboldt-University of Berlin)

Kristina Jõekalda, M.A. (Estonian Academy of Arts)

Antje Kempe, M.A. (Humboldt-University of Berlin)


The second conference in the series, concentrating on Socialist Internationalism and the Global Contemporary Transnational Art Historiographies from Eastern and East-Central Europe”, will be held in Leipzig (Leibniz-Institut für Geschichte und Kultur des östlichen Europa) on 23–25 November 2017. The deadline for paper proposals is 30 April 2017. For details see the open call for papers.
