03 Feb EEP Vol. 1
East European Photography
“An Artist Who Cannot Speak English Is No Artist” was the title of one of Croatian conceptual artist Mladen Stilinović’s exhibitions in 1992. But thanks to so deeply committed people such as Maya Hristova this barrier belongs for once to the past. On her journey through more than 18 countries in Eastern Europe she and her team met 42 contemporary photographers and translated their reflections upon their past, socialism and their work. EEP (Eastern European Photography) Vol. 1 shows underlying nuances and draws hidden connections among the photographers, a dialogue which deals with an often distorted and disconnected image of their socialist heritage.
