Rauschenberg’s Tokyo Antics
In front of more than 500 people gathered at Sogetsu Art Center in Tokyo, Robert Rauschenberg guzzled whiskey oranges, unveiled a gold folding screen, and, sweating profusely, attacked it with a drill. 

Also, under the theme New Yorkers in Tokyo: The Neo-Dada Nexus, read an account of Merce Cunningham‘s visit to Tokyo.

Unequal Cities
With an article by David Harvey on planetary urbanization, and reflections by architects from Istanbul, Hong Kong, and New York on bottom-up responses to city living, the Uneven Growth theme offers an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at the research that produced the current exhibition at MoMA. 

Pop Art Is Poison
In a candid interview, Brazilian Conceptual artist Cildo Meireles insists that his famed Insertions into Ideological Circuits—bank notes the artist stamped with texts and then returned to circulation—have no relationship to Pop art.

Budapest, Bratislava, Brno, Berlin…
Through accounts of visits to artists’ studios, museums, and architectural sites, All the Cities that Start with “B.” Notes from a Trip to Central Europe offers first-person narratives of a recent Eastern European road trip by MoMA curators.

Revolution Today
Taking a cue from the 1981 mail art project Poema Colectivo: Revolución, initiated by the Mexican artist collective Colectivo 3, 30 contemporary Mexican artists sent us works on the theme of revolution. We welcome your submission, too!

Where Is China?
The year 1993 saw the introduction of the so-called Chinese avant-garde to international exhibitions, which included works by Xu Bing, Ding Yi, and Huang Yong Ping, among others. But this was also a moment characterized by a dynamic underground scene in China. Was 1993 a point of departure in the country’s visual arts? 

post has also recently featured artists Marina Abramović,Big Tail Elephant Group, Antonio Dias, Felipe Ehrenberg, Anna Bella Geiger,Yoshimasu Gozo, Jiří Kovanda, Shigeko Kubota, Katalin Ladik, Dora Maurer, Shiomi Mieko, Krzysztof Penderecki, Motonaga Sadamasa, Edgardo Antonio Vigo, Tone Yasunao, Zhang Xiaogang, and many others.

Coming soon to post: MoMA staff respond to works in the collection that connect the Museum with other geographies; Fluxus Threads in Eastern Europe, a series of posts on experimental art in Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, and Poland; and Global Conceptualism Reconsidered, which examines the legacy of the often referenced exhibition.

post is an online platform developed by The Museum of Modern Art in close collaboration with an international network of partners and contributors. Broadening the histories told by MoMA’s collection and exhibitions, post challenges a Western-centric art history by publishing research and artistic projects that pertain to Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, and Latin America and the Caribbean.
 
Adopting the attributes of an online journal, archive, exhibition space, and forum for exchange, post aims to document a broader history of artistic practices for artists and institutions working today. By juxtaposing art from disparate contexts, the site offers a valuable opportunity to explore the commonalities as well as the differences that are essential to an understanding of the global art field.
 
post grows out of MoMA’s “Contemporary and Modern Art Perspectives” (C-MAP), a cross-departmental research program begun in 2009 to facilitate a museum-wide study that reflects the multiplicity of modernities and histories of contemporary and modern art. Read more about C-MAP here.
 
To join the conversations, create a user profile that will keep you updated with activities on post.
 
 
C-MAP is supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and The International Council of The Museum of Modern Art. Additional funding is provided by Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, Adriana Cisneros de Griffin, and Marlene Hess.
