MinEastry of Postcollapse Art and Culture is an artist-run space and think tank dedicated to exploring our global contemporary from the vantage of postcollapse art and theory. Our frames of reference begin with the human experiences from Eastern Europe and Western and Central Asia since the fall of the Berlin Wall but permeate to every corner of our diasporic world-presence.
Whereas the terms postwar, postcolonial, and even postmodern mark the contours of new social realities shaped in the aftermath of certain historical ruptures, the term postcollapse offers a new mode of thinking collectively “from eastward out.” Essentially, postcollapse captures who we are, what we make, and how we think as artists and scholars producing work today.
MPAC is interested in bold and daring ideas that lead to thoughtful art and research-based projects. Our programming includes art exhibitions, artist talks, roundtables, published manuscripts, and other projects. We invite artists, scholars, and art professionals whose work resonates with postcollapse to make use of our space and resources.
In this space, we create, curate, and collaborate.
