      1. This book includes contributions that consider how artists responded to the revolutions of 1989 within their art practice and is relatively unique in its scope, going beyond the former USSR and Eastern bloc to deal with conditions and artistic production in China and Cuba, for example. With texts by Boris Groys (FORMER WEST researcher) on the unofficial Russian art scene (The Other Gaze: Russian Unofficial Art’s View of the Soviet World), Gerardo Mosquera on New Cuban Art, and Gao Minglu, Post-Utopian Avant-Garde in China.
