The history of visual arts unfolds by the artworks of past times and the actual artistic practice. Artworks are condensed documents of thought, reason and of emotional relation to reality and social surrounding. Art history translates such documents into language and theory against the background of additional historic facts. Since the last decade Western art history is getting rewritten and reformulated. The one-sided narrative of art history based on the Western European and North American allegedly logical development is getting completed and modified by many stories about parallel developments based on the multiplicity of cultural spheres on our planet.
