 About the Book 

Igor Zabel (1958-2005) was one of Slovenias foremost curators and writers. Published as a part of JRP - Ringiers Documents critical writings series (published with Les presses du reel), this important collection of Zabels writings--his first in English--serves as a methodology model for research into Eastern European art techniques and practices. The selected texts are divided into four chapters: East-West and Between, which explores perceptions of otherness following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989- Strategies and Spaces of Art, which examines strategies of representation and theories of display and the role of the curator- Ad Personam, which includes individual artists and art from Socialist Realism and conceptualism to postmodernism and contextual art, particularly in Slovenia and South Eastern Europe- and Extras, a selection of Zabels columns on arts and culture.
