CEAD – Central European Art Database

Project partners from among V4 galleries, museums and NGOs systematically map cultural life in post-war Central Europe creating an extensive interactive deposit of the historical era under the communist regime and shortly after its collapse.

The database features the region’s key artistic figures actively involved in the progressive development of culture during the Communist era. The data are sorted according to individual requirements and are accompanied by a series of short video portraits of selected Central European artists.

This unique virtual collection aims to present connections that formed the cultural identity of Central Europe. By providing insight to this certain era, it creates a unique form of common heritage and an open interactive archive of cultural memory.
