Mirrors of Romania: The Bittersweet legacy of communism in Romania

Reflections (II): Young Artists

Mirrors of Romania: The Bittersweet legacy of communism in Romania
Mihai Nistor (Iasi, RO)

Presentation in GEMAK’s flex space and at Quartair.

Young artists reflect on the historical events of 1989. What are the implications of the fall of communism in Romania 25 years ago and how do young artists relate to these topics? What dilemma’s do artists face today?

Arts foundation Mirrors of Romania organizes a student exchange program with young artists from Romania and The Netherlands. During one month the students will work in The Hague. The program consists of exhibitions in Quartair and GEMAK. Additionally there will be lectures, films and tutorials in GEMAK.

The program aims at an artistic exchange between Romania and The Netherlands. The reflections by the young artists will contribute to the research question: what is the role of the artist in (oppressed) society.

Reflections (II): Young Artists is the second part of the exhibition project The bittersweet legacy of communism in Romania. Reflections (I): Dan Perjovschi which took place in December 2014 at the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague.

Artists: Ioana Ciora (The Hague, NL | Bucharest, RO), Csongor Szabó (Oradea, RO), Afra Eisma (The Hague, NL), Zsófia Gábor (Cluj, RO), Bas Kaufmann (The Hague, NL), Mihai Nistor (Iasi, RO).
