OUR GOALS

Easttopics aims at mapping and providing more visibility to protagonists of the Eastern European art life, should they be artists, art professionals, institutions, events or publications. It also wishes to act as a dynamic platform fostering connections, exchanges, community building, and cooperations for both practice-based and research-based projects on a local, regional, and international level.

HOW WE PROCEED

We believe that the comprehension of the Eastern European contemporary art scene requires personal contacts and experiences with our field of study. This on-going project is therefore built on the knowledge we acquire during our self-funded travels and nourished by our identification and understanding of site-specific and situation-specific questions, topics, issues addressed by the art field in each of these countries.

WHO WE ARE

Easttopics was imagined and is developed by Fruzsina Kígyós and Róna Kopeczky.
