Young ART, Young DEMOCRACY
During November and December, as part of the twenty-year commemoration of the 1989 December Revolution, the Foundation Interart TRIADE will be presenting the Young Democracy, Young Art project. Young Art aims to highlight some of the themes that have moulded the way of thinking and speaking in politics in the years gone by: democracy, inheritance, confession, liberty/pseudo-liberty, maturity. The young artists challenged through this project to reflect upon these taboo-themes didn’t come into direct contact with the Revolution, but only its reflexion filtered by different perceptual mediums: school, parents, mass-media, society in general. Their artistic attitude is an expression of how the idea of the Revolution grew and was internalized in their consciousnesses, how they’ve filtered the multiple truths which were offered, repeatedly, as the only authentic Truth. The project wants to shape itself as a live manifestation, a fresh judgement of the „inheritance” which the Revolution gave birth to in their consciousnesses as users and beneficiaries of the consequences to the events of 20 years ago.
The Street Art Project is the first event out of three major events during the 20year aniversary of the romanian Revolution started in Timisoara. The concept of this "streetart" project is, to remember the anticommunist slogans from december 1989, written of the walls of Timisoaras buildings. This "Rebirth" of the revolutionary atmosphere was one of the main interests of the project. The Gallery invited 5 contemporary well known romanian artists and 5 romanian well known street artists.
