Central Asian Art-Traffic


When I am visiting the next symposium about contemporary art issues, organized by some famous international biennale or any other international forum, I am sure that this or that issue relating to the geopolitical identity in contemporary art will be raised. Presenters speak about ‘Eastern’ art and I am sure that they mean the so-called Far East: China, Korea, Indonesia, Vietnam, or maybe India… And when European art is presented, then it’s about Central and Western Europe, or Eastern Europe and Russia. Central Asian art is situated somewhere in-between these fundamental poles.
