This is a catalogue of the exhibition „Lithuanian Art. 2000 – 2010: ten years“. This exhibition is the first attempt to write the history of Lithuanian contemporary art of the new millennium. The exhibition presented over 70 artists and participants and nearly 100 artworks that reflect five indentified artistic strategies which have significantly changed Lithuanian art over the last decade. Five chapters in the book as well as the exhibition were created in order to name those strategies: Appropriation – the use of found objects and other artists’ work in one’s own practice; Collaboration – a search for new models of authorship and communication; Documentary – practices that address reality using the means of documentary aesthetic; Fictions – regarded not as the opposite of truth but as the plural form of reality; Institutional critique – practices that analyse existing operating principles of art institutions and propose new ones.
