Urban Art and Activism in Eastern Europe

The book focuses on artistic practices in the urban public spaces of Eastern Europe, particularly in the so-called post-Soviet bloc. Public spaces are seen as indicators of society’s democratization, as well as places where the interests of business, government and grassroots initiatives intersect, often in tension with one another.

This collection contains illustrations inspirations and descriptions of urban art projects that were presented in 2017 in exhibitions, conferences and laboratories of the Coordinate System platform. The book is giving a colorful insight in public artistic practices in post-Soviet urban environments.

Edited by Igor Ponosov and Alexandra Goloborodko in collaboration with Hannah Cornell, Aleksandra Yurieva-Civjane, Alexander Formozov.
