In the exhibition „Goldbach im Goldrausch?!“ we want to combine arts and politics with the help of Romanian artists and experts on the topic. The artists’ approach to the mining project will be exhibited at the Prima Center Gallery in Berlin Wedding. Their works reflect the current situation in Roşia Montană.
17 artists from Romania and Germany applied to our Call for Art and a jury selected 7 of them for the exhibition “Goldbach im Goldrausch?!”. The selected artists are Ana Rusu, Andrada Luca, Ilisie Remus, Ana Popescu, Cristina Rotaru, Gabriela Ghircoias and Wonderboy.
The works vary between documentation, abstraction and staged photography. Curators: Airi Uuna and Anne Gebauer.
The exhibition will take place between 16th November and 28th November 2012. The Prima Center in Berlin Wedding is a gallery with a focus on Eastern European art. Artist and curator Jovan Balov is the director of the Prima Center Berlin.
