This book provides a comprehensive account of the art scene in Poland during the 1980s, focusing especially on artistic outliers who have been ignored in previously published accounts of this era. With a special emphasis on art in grass roots movements and its relationship to political rhetoric of the time, "Rejected Heritage" offers a unique and significant new portrait of one of the most dynamic decades of art in Poland. Pulling together conference materials, transcripts of panel discussions, and interviews with important players in the 1980s Polish art scene, this volume marks the beginning of a broader agenda of preserving memory by writing down the oral history of this influential period in European art. Offering a nuanced and complex description of 1980s Polish art, "Rejected Heritage" is an invaluable addition to the scholarly corpus on national art in the late twentieth century.show more
