Description This text documents and expands upon an exhibition programme of the same name; a project organized by the London based arts initiative Beaconsfield and Jutempus - a similar artists-led space in Vilnius, Lithuania. The volume comprises a collection of diverse essays by established authors reflecting on the broad divisions and links in culture and history between Eastern and Western Europe. In particular, the nature of nationalism is examined with regard to the role of contemporary art following the demise of communism. The essays are accompanied by a selection of illustrations by contemporary artists from both the UK and Lithuania. Artists featured in the work include: Lucy Gunning, Matt Collishaw, Fiona Banner, Evaldas Jansas, Dziugas Katina and Linas Liandzbergis.
