Manifesta 2, European Biennial for Contemporary Art, curated by Robert Fleck, Maria Lind, and Barbara Vanderlinden, was on view at Casino Luxembourg-Forum d`art contemporain (and other venues), Luxembourg from 28.06–11.10.1998). The exhibition, and later the catalog itself, were influential because of the extensive research undertaken by the curators in many Central and Eastern European countries. See in particular Robert Fleck’s essay ‘Art After Communism,’ in which he claims that, because of the political and cultural changes ushered in by the fall of the Berlin Wall, artists no longer need to take positions in ‘the ideological battle’ that separated Europe in the twentieth century and can now participate fully in a kind of ‘international style.’ The back section of the catalog, with information on countries from Albania to Yugoslavia, written by local cultural actors (pp. 214–271), became a key source of information in the field. Exhibited artists included: Maurizio Cattelan, Carsten Höller, Elke Krystufek, Bjarne Melgaard, Deimantas Narkevičius, Tanja Ostojić, Dan Perjovschi, Tobias Rehberger, Eran Schaerf, Ann-Sofi Sidén, Sean Snyder, Sarah Sze, Pitor Ulański, Richard Wright, etc.
