Confrontations: Sessions in East European Art History

This research project investigates the entangled histories of East European art through a series of itinerant symposia held at pertinent locations across and beyond the region.

By staging encounters between contrasting aesthetic and critical positions and creating conditions for comparative insights to crystallise, these sessions aim to instigate more rigorous and integrated accounts of East European art history.

Confrontations is supported by a grant from the Getty Foundation through its Connecting Art Histories initiative and co-directed by Dr. Maja Fowkes and Dr. Reuben Fowkes.

For further information about the programme of seminars, guest lectures, collection and studio visits and public events see the Confrontations Blog.
