Regional Resonances: In Search of the Transnational in Central East European Art of the 1970s, another special issue is being published jointly by ArtMargins Online and Print with contributions by Hana Buddeus, Emese Kürti, Zsuzsa László, Małgorzata Miśniakewicz, Cristian Nae, and Alina Șerban. Published jointly by ARTMargins Online and ARTMargins Print Journal, this special issue explores dialogs between the artists working in different state-socialist societies of Eastern Europe beyond the state-imposed ties binding together these so-called friendly countries. The articles comprising this special issue highlight different but intersecting aspects and threads of the same intertwined web of transnational relations, friendships, exchanges, art events, and collaborations that happened within and beyond the region in the era of the Cold War.
