Description

This book consists of a dialogue of genres (fiction, parables, essay, analytic, programmatic) on the topic of Eastern European political culture before and after 1989. These texts introduce us to a reexamination of the aesthetic and political character of Eastern Europe. The later texts undertake a major theoretical revision of some of the key concepts in aesthetic and political philosophy associated with post-totalitarian Eastern Europe. The topic is very important for a correct evaluation of the current ideological and aesthetic makeup of our postmodern age. The most stimulating aspect of this collection is its continuous detour through related areas--its definition of political aesthetics by way of the historical avant-garde, its explanation of communism by way of the modernist utopia.

Review quote

"This collection is subtle and dialogic in nature. Its various texts talk to one another, impacting, echoing, responding to one another's arguments. There is also an interesting dialogue of genres in this book: various kinds of discourses collaborate towards a reconstruction of Eastern European political culture, before and after 1989." -- Marcel Cornis-Pope, Virginia Commonwealth University
