Our Resonances international project examines artistic relations and collaborations in the Central and Eastern European region during the Cold War era. In connection with the conference Beyond Friendships: Regional Cultural Transfer in The Art of the 1970s, we present a selection from Artpool’s collection entitled Language Games. The display contains works and documents of cross-border collaboration by Karel Adamus, Gábor Attalai, László Beke, Attila Csernik, Robert Cyprich, Tibor Csiky, Miklós Erdély, Jarosław Kozłowski, Natalia LL, Katalin Ladik, László Lakner, Dóra Maurer, Sándor Pinczehelyi, Robert Rehfeldt, Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt, Tamás Szentjóby, Bálint Szombathy, Endre Tót, Gábor Tóth, Péter Türk, Jiří Valoch and Franci Zagoričnik.
The exhibition focuses on East European artists’ works, activities, and dialogues that reflect on the challenges of transnational exchanges, communication between actors speaking different mother tongues, and explore the possibilities of using art as a language of mediation and cultural translation.
The exhibition can be visited at Artpool during opening hours by prior appointment (firstname.lastname@example.org) until 19 August 2022.
