Art East Central, Vol. 1, No. 1, February 2021

Christian Drobe, Masaryk Universität

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.

The journal publishes original research articles on art, architecture and design in central Europe, as well as associated topics, such as museology, art criticism and theory, and the art market. We particularly welcome contributions that adopt a transnational approach, examining practices, ideas and traditions that cross the political, linguistic, ethnic, and cultural boundaries of the region. Interdisciplinary approaches, as well as reflection on the particular challenges this region raises for relevant academic practices, are also encouraged. The journal includes book reviews, as well as occasional discussion forums. From time to time the journal will also publish special issues on particular themes, and the editors welcome suggestions for special issue topics.
