The paper examines the social and institutional dimensions of art history in post-communist Slovakia. Art history itself an often-presumed neutral autonomous science – though brutally contaminated ideologically in the previous regime – struggles today with several problems. Not only a lack of self-reflection on the discipline and its methods and a lack of critical dialogue with past practices, but a new socio-economic framework outline the set of questions that need to be asked. The fundamental question, which the author asks, is how the science entitled art historiography is constituted and how it distributes knowledge under new conditions through concrete institutions.
