Exploring East European Women’s History through Research-based Exhibitions


A Käthe-Leichter public lecture/talk by Beáta Hock, Ph.D.

UPDATE: Due to the current pandemic situation we decided to hold the lecture exclusively online. We cordially invite to join on Wednesday, 12 January 2022, 18:30-20:00. Please register here to follow the lecture. See our leaflet for more information.

Beáta Hock, Ph.D. is currently Senior Researcher of the department “Entanglements and Globalisation” at the Leibniz Institute for the History and Culture of Eastern Europe (GWZO), Leipzig. Her areas of research and teaching include East-Central European art and art history, feminist cultural theory, and the cultural dimensions of the global Cold War. The perspectives of global history generally inform her research output on the art and cultural history of Eastern Europe.

In the academic year 2015–16 she was visiting professor at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London. From 2022 she is project lead of Linking Art Worlds: American Art and Eastern Europe in the Cold War and Since, a joint “Connecting Art Histories” Travelling Seminar Series, funded by the Getty Foundation and the Terra Foundation for American Art. She also occasionally works as independent curator; her latest exhibition Left Performance Histories was on view in Berlin’s NGbK in 2018.
