State territory is always historical and contemporary in equal measure; the soil, like the memory, is imagined individually or conventionally. Time has passed it by, but many of the images, the monuments of the state’s self-production remain. The time of their public monopolisation at the centre of power has passed them by, and the question now is: what remains? What effect has this art had in the context of its creation? What use is it, what is it capable of today? Instru- mentalised art is usually easy to detect, but what political art survives after the demise of its system? And what about art that instrumentalises politics? What is the significance of art as a means of overcoming the political system, can individual needs create space for themselves and transport personal agendas?
