This book is not a complete historiography of contemporary Cypriot art; rather, this critical text provides a theoretical and historical framework that both contextualizes and frames current and future art practices from Cyprus, and always relates these back to the international art scene. Numerous current and pressing issues, all relevant beyond Cyprus, are investigated in this volume; these include, but are not limited to, art as capital, the emergence of the "periphery", the importance of thriving localities, issues on memory and memorialization, archaeology, artists' identities, conflict and politics, social engagement, gender politics, and curatorial alternatives (artist-run spaces)"--
