About this product
- DescriptionThe transition from state-directed to market-oriented ecomies poses many problems for the artists: the logic of the market favors standardization and mass-production which does t fit for the arts. There is a multitude of styles but clearcut concept of art in the West which could serve as guide-line. Under the communist rule, some artists almost had a mopoly for political criticism, a function which vanished after the fall of communism. Experts from ten countries (Eastern and Western) are dealing with problems like these and related topics.
