ANTI-SOCIAL ART:
EXPERIMENTAL PRACTICES
IN LATE EAST GERMANY

Jan. 18 thru May 15, 2022
Special Exhibition Gallery
The exhibition Anti-Social Art: Experimental Practices in Late East Germany concentrates on one of the Cold War East's most contentious contexts: East Germany in its final decades. From photography to performance art, independent films to independent publications, artworks from this period reveal the core disjunctions between state power and citizen agency. Importantly, artists created a social sphere that was both independent of and entangled within official culture.
