Imagined as a response to the symbolic context of exhibiting within the spaces of The People’s Palace (colloquial name for The Palace of the Parliament) where the museum is located, The Fracture aims at exploring fragmentation as a critical perspective of understanding the symptoms of our times.

The approach takes as a starting point the observation that discontinuity and the experience of the multiple transformations that occurred after 1989 have caused serious mutations in the mentality and the manner in which Romanians and East-Europeans relate to the present.

Mircea Suciu seizes that the violent rupture with the old manner of seeing and thinking from the Communist period corresponds to an equally violent fracture in Capitalism and to a hybrid identity suspended between nostalgia for Communism and the mimesis of European forms without content.

The exhibition will be itinerated in 2016 to MoCAB - Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade.

Project supported by: Zeno X Gallery, Belgium and Grup Transilvae.
