SEEING HISTORY - 1947-2007. THE MNAC COLLECTION
15.11.2018 - 31.10.2019

For the first time in a 18-year long existence, the National Museum of Contemporary Art launches in its most generous space a long-term innovative project dedicated to the collection: the curatorial discourse presents Romanian contemporary art history (1947 – 2007) by giving equal weight to the documentary and artistic dimensions, to the production of culture and to the context determining it. Thus, Romania’s contemporary history and art history enter into a dialogue through the systematic display of one of our country’s most eclectic museum collections.

Inherited mostly from other institutions and reflecting, up until 1990, the purchase mechanisms of the former communist cultural propaganda structures, the MNAC collection is able to contribute to a nuanced outlook on Romanian artistic life, from a perspective guided not only by value criteria, but also by an overview of the social, economic and political context that influenced its becoming. Seeing History (1947-2007) is designed as an open platform for presentation, analysis and debate, following the principles of collective curating and bound to continuously change through the accumulation of knowledge.
