Gender Check: A Reader
This anthology gathers writings on art and gender in Eastern Europe, contributing almost neglected historical and contemporary aspects to present debates, thereby shedding new light on the field as a whole.
It is the first representative collection of essays investigating gender issues in social, cultural, and artistic contexts in Armenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia. The authors reveal how social and cultural developments and political ideologies affect the construction of gender identities in visual arts produced before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
