New Histories of Art: Polish art of the 20th and 21st century
The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw cordially invite authors to submit their book proposals for a new publishing series “New Histories of Art”.

The collaborative series published jointly by the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and the Faculty of Management of Visual Culture of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw introduces new research perspectives in the history of Polish art of the 20th and 21st century. It aims at reaching beyond traditional frontiers of the discipline and building a broader, international platform for thought exchange between artistic circles and institutions, and between various branches of the humanities. The series proposes a close-up of the social history. It puts particular emphasis on developing basic research and revising established historical narratives through the introduction of new perspectives, centres, characters, works, or thematic areas
