Club Electro Putere Craiova with Romanian Cultural Institute of Berlin is pleased to invite you to:

Halle 12 Spinnerei Leipzig
1st of May 2010

The exhibition presents ideas and images of the changing post-Communist culture gathered from the Romanian visual arts the last twenty years.
The event is built around the concept of “cultural resolution”, an analysis of contemporary cultural discourse through art. A dominant theme is the deep cultural nature of the post-Communist experience characterized by a constant reference to the past and the corresponding projection of a democratic future. Both these features make a cultural discourse, originating from the distressing legacy of a decayed political regime, legitimate.
The fall of Communism, and the instinctive rejection thereof, has been followed by two decades of self-imposed learning of the fundamentals of democracy. The art works that make up the “Romanian Cultural Resolution” Project aim to raise questions about the time and space typical of this post-Communist experience. It takes an introspective look at contemporary art and culture and dismantles the previous cultural utopia.
The exhibition is made up of four trustee projects with contributions from the most important names in Romanian contemporary art.
