»Forgotten Heritage: European Avant-garde Art Online« is a project about avant-garde artists from Poland, Croatia, Belgium, and Estonia, with a focus on the 1960s and 1970s.
The initiative to digitize these artists’ works and make them available online was initiated in 2018 by the Arton Foundation within the Creative Europe program.
Currently, the project »Not yet written stories« aims to add more forgotten female artists.
