About ARTMargins Online (AMO)

ARTMargins Mission

ARTMargins is a publication with an online outlet (ARTMargins Online) and a print outlet (ARTMargins Print). Both have distinct content but share an interest in publishing research, criticism, and artistic projects that advance our understandings of post-socialism, postmodernism, and postcolonialism, within the framework of a global art history. ARTMargins explores the shifting geo-political, aesthetic, and economic configurations that shape the art production in the margins, attending to narratives and territories that have been excluded from contemporary art history.

About ARTMargins Online (AMO)

ARTMargins Online (AMO) publishes interviews, essays, reviews, and podcasts that analyze postwar and contemporary art of East-Central Europe in a global setting.

In addition to reviews and interviews that highlight contemporary art practices and new scholarship in the region, AMO invites submissions that explore the following frameworks and topics, among others:

  • Contemporary art that analyzes political, social, and cultural conditions in East-Central Europe in a comparative frame, drawing connections across global geographies;

  • The experiences and legacies of socialism and post-socialism, and the ways these experiences connect with global histories, including that of colonialism and post-colonialism;

  • Contemporary artistic practices that explore or are informed by migration, exile, and movements across and between borders;

  • Artistic critiques of neoliberalism and resurgent nationalism that highlight the transnational and global character of these ideologies;

  • New artistic or curatorial approaches to the question of ‘marginal’ cultural geographies that destabilize traditional approaches to the center/periphery divide;

  • Contemporary art that explores the intersecting meanings of marginalization, critiquing institutional and social inequities based on gender, race, class, abilities, citizenship, and other factors;

  • The multiple legacies of empire and colonialism in East-Central Europe, and the ways empire has shaped cultural and political definitions of the region
