This publication is a result and a recapitulation of the project Art Always Has Its Consequences, which was a two-year collaborative platform (2008-2010) organized by new media center_kuda.org (Novi Sad), tranzit.hu (Budapest), Muzeum Sztuki (Łódź) and What, How & for Whom / WHW (Zagreb). The project explored practices through which art reaches its audience and their significance for broader relations between art and society, focusing on four thematic strands: the history of exhibitions, artists’ texts, conceptual design, typography, and institutional archives.
The book contains a chronology of the project, documents of events and exhibitions realized in this framework; a reader of essays written or selected for the book on the issue of the former East; and the catalogue of the closing exhibition of the project, organized in Zagreb, in 2010.
