Lithuania’s Cultural History From The End Of World War II To The Present Day

 
The main goal of the Modern Art Center (MMC) is to assemble a broad, representative collection of Lithuanian art created from the 1950s to the present day. While each work in the MAC collection is interesting and valuable in its own right, each piece can be viewed in a new light when we learn more about the context in which it was created and the overall history of art in which each work plays a part.
 
The Cultural History project was born out of a desire to learn more about this context: the connections between each piece of art, the relationships shared by the artists, and the changes in and styles, and trends of our conception of art. After all, art does not appear out of a vacuum—it is surrounded by political and economic context, and within culture itself different aspects of life intertwine with and influence each other. People and ideas meet, separate, and change, each impacting the other. In order to better understand cultural development and to grasp general (or contradicting) trends, we invited contributions from specialists in various cultural fields (read more about the authors). Their published articles, and those still being written, join with a constantly updated catalogue of visual materials on the Cultural History website into one polyphonic archive of knowledge.
 
With his or her contribution, each author expresses their own individual experience and subjective view, therefore this cultural history is not, and cannot be, uniform or objective. It is rather more reminiscent of a colorful kaleidoscope, radiating not only events, facts, dates, names, or works of art, but also varying artistic interpretations that emerge from today’s perspective.
 
The site will review 10 cultural fields: the fine arts, applied art, design, literature, theatre, set design, dance, architecture, photography, and cinema. Each field will be discussed individually, allowing the reader to explore the interconnections and differences between them on his or her own.
 
The section on the fine arts is closely associated with the MMC’s own collection. Here you'll find many works mentioned by the authors that are now part of the MMC collection. The principle text in this section is divided according to the different branches of the visual arts, reviewing the development of painting, graphic art, and the new art of the late 20th century. All other fields are first examined by time period, with several or more themes explored within these period sections. Texts are usually succinct articles that aim to give a general overview of a given period, though some phenomena, events, works of art, or individuals may be explored in greater depth. The main project text includes many references and links to these more comprehensive articles. Over time, we hope to add to the number of such links.
 
Currently, the Cultural History website features only a portion of these articles. Others are still being prepared for publication and will be added to the Cultural History in the future.
