Can the legacy of Socialism help to recover the concept of “common good” in a complex region which has recently endured the tragedy of a civil war and the rise of Nationalism in opposition to increased multi-ethnicity and the economic crisis that has hit the whole of Europe?
This important question is the theme of the exhibition held at the MAXXI in Rome, and is focussed on artists from ex-Yugoslavia who have contributed to the opposition of Nationalism, stimulating important reflection on the issues of acceptance and peaceful coexistence.
This exhibition guides us through the artistic unrest in the Balkans and is based on a specific interpretation, expressed through the action of contemporary heroes and a reflection on a range of aspects that correspond to the different sections of the exhibition: Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, Hope, Risk, the Individual, Otherness, Metamorphosis.
More than 50 artists interpret the history of the region through the action of contemporary heroes.
