'Shape of Time – Future of Nostalgia'

21 Apr – 09 Oct 2016
MNAC - National Museum of Contemporary Art, Bucharest
Poster Shape of Time - Future of Nostalgia

Art Collection Telekom will be presented at MNAC - National Museum of Contemporary Art in Bucharest under the title 'Shape of Time - Future of Nostalgia'.

'Shape of Time - Future of Nostalgia' emphasizes the strong narrative aspect of Eastern European art, relating the history of and stories from the countries of Eastern Europe. They are stories that reveal an engagement with the past or a vision of the future; all are characterized by a reflection on how history is constructed and modified. Who is telling the narratives? How is time shaped? It counts for the past as well as for the future. ‘Nostalgia’, as Svetlana Boym analyses in ‘The Future of Nostalgia’ is a symptom of our age. It may seem retrospective, but ‘the fantasies of the past, determined by the needs of the present, have a direct impact on the realities of the future’.

A public programme featuring expert lectures, a music performance and artist talks will accompany the exhibition.

Participating artists: Hortensia Mi Kafchin, Yane Calovski, Stanisław Dróżdż, Ksenia Gnilitska, Igor Grubić, Aneta Grzeszykowska, Nilbar Güres, Petrit Halilaj, Vladimir Houdek, Pravdoliub Ivanov, Ali Kazma, Šejla Kamerić, Lesia Khomenko, Genti Korini, Eva Kotátková, Zofia Kulik, Vlado Martek, Radenko Milak, Sükran Moral, Ciprian Mureşan, Vlad Nancă, Ioana Nemes, Paulina Ołowska, Roman Ondak, Dan Perjovschi, Agnieszka Polska, Tobias Putrih, Nedko Solakov, Mladen Stilinović.
