The word â€œostalgieâ€ emerged in Germany in the 1990s to describe a then-burgeoning nostalgia for the era prior to the collapse of the Communist Bloc and the breaking up of countries formerly united under Communist government. 'Ostalgia' looks at the art produced in these countries â€“ some of which did not even formally exist two decades ago â€“ bringing together the work of more than 50 artists from 20 countries across Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Republics. Among the artists included are Victor Alimpiev, Miroslav Balka, Irina Botea, AndrÃ© Cadere, Sanja Ivekovic, Jiri Kovanda, Jonas Mekas, Boris Mikhailov, Roman OndÃ¡k, Anri Sala, and Andro Wekua.
