Former West

Maria Hlavajova, Simon Sheikh
Art and the Contemporary after 1989
This book has been published in the context of the curatorial and artistic research experiment FORMER WEST (2008-2016).

FORMER WEST is a long-term, transnational research, education, publishing, and exhibition project in the field of contemporary art and theory. The project grapples with the repercussions of the political, cultural, and economic events of 1989 for the contemporary condition. It does so in the search for ways of formerizing the persistently hegemonic conjuncture that is “the West”; to be able instead to simply refer to “the west,” and with it, suggest the possibility of producing new constellations, another world, other worldings.
