ArtEast/Central Nr.2

The second issue of our journal ArtEast/Central has been published.

Art East Central is an English-language, open access, peer reviewed international journal publishing articles on architecture, design and the visual arts in central Europe from 1800 to the present day.

Nr. 2 brings you a round-table discussion ‘Globalizing Early Modern Central and Eastern European Art,’ led by Robyn Radway, Tomasz Grusiecki and their colleagues.

The article by Cosmin Minea ‘Beyond National Style: The Innovative Thinking and Designs of the Architect Ion Mincu (1852–1912)’ offers a critical reading of the works and thinking of the celebrated Romanian architect Ion Mincu (1852–1912) in relation to the broader cultural and political context of the new nation-state.

This issue of Art East Central contains two collections of translations of historic primary source material: four essays by the Hungarian architectural critic Virgil Bierbauer (1893-1956) and a collection of reviews and commentaries on exhibitions of art and design by women in interwar Austria.
