Abstract

Factory ware designs: the power of decoration during communism presentation discussed the evolution of Eastern European design during communism, its location on the outside Western design and craft histories or discourses on modernity, having been excluded / marginalized as a geographical/temporal location. Eastern European design during this time hardly surfaced on the international scene as the political pressure imposed economic, social and cultural isolation. The European countries of the Communist Block shared history: their estrangement from the post-war international economic and political stage entailed a cultural division from the West. Communism created an internal vacuum; it neutralised and homogenised what remained of the national ethos built on regional traditions, the ideologies and academic schools of late 19th early 20th century. In closing the borders to the circulation of goods it hindered the export of culture that might have given some perception of its Europeanness.
