To support “Linking Art Worlds: American Art and Eastern Europe in the Cold War and Since,” a program jointly funded by the Terra Foundation and the Getty and led by the Leibniz Institute. The program consists of a series of traveling seminars, including an opening symposium in Prague and a writing workshop in Giverny, France. While the overall thematic lens is devoted to overcoming national frameworks through the study of official/unofficial encounters and engagements between the art scenes on both sides of the Iron Curtain, the content of the symposium and seminars is driven by site visits to archives and collections as well as by meetings with local experts.
