Kontakt. The Art Collection of Erste Group explores art production in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe with a special emphasis on contemporary art discourses and critical theory. Kontakt reflects the political transformation in Europe and the significance of art before the background of specific cultural, social and economic developments in the post-socialist countries. Its aim is to develop a collection with a sound art-historical and conceptual basis that deals with artistic positions rooted in a specific location and context that has long been neglected by many museums despite this art’s international credentials. This endeavor ­causes displacements within the existing canon of the most recent art history and opens new opportunities for the positioning of artistic activity. (kontakt-collection.net)
