The hybridization process in art took place in a historical process like other cultural hybridizations such as language, religion and race. The colonialist period specially can be described as the peak of hybridization in European art. The hybridization process of contemporary balkan art has been shaped historically in relation to social periods and concepts such as colonialism, culturalism and multiculturalism. Balkan artists approached this process through the concepts of language, identity and ethnicity and emphasized the notions of being european - not being european and marginalizing. In this context the purpose of the study is discussing the hybridisation process between Contemporary Balkan Art and the Europan based art and the results of this process over discussing the notion of the hybridisation itself and to examine the effects of this process on selected examples of Contemporary Balkan art.
