Note "This reader is part of the research and exhibition project Gender check. The exhibition Gender check : femininity and masculinity in the art of Eastern Europe was shown at the Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien, Vienna (November 13, 2009-February 14, 2010) and Zacḩeta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw (March 19-June 13, 2010)"--P. facing t.p
After 1989, a serious body of knowledge has been produced in the former socialist states as well as in the West that theorizes the notion of gender and gender relations established in state-socialism and in the post-communist era. However, the existing volumes rarely (if ever) pay attention to the construction of femininity and masculinity in visual arts. The Gender Check reader presents, for the first time, an extensive collection of texts that explicitly analyze visual arts created before and after 1989 in the 'other' Europe in terms of gender and feminist theories
