In the wake of German unification, the long and contentious 1990s saw many of East Germany’s artists come under attack. In essence, these debates were about the roles East German artists would be allowed to play in unified Germany. Panelists will discuss their recollections and thoughts about the evolution of attitudes towards East German art in the years after German unification.
