About

MinEastry of Postcollapse Art and Culture is pleased to present 1989, an international group exhibition by nine artists working across multiple media. This is the first in a series of exhibitions unfolding the resonances of the  year, 1989.

To speak of 1989 is to speak of revolutions. For some, it marks the end of history as the last chapter of a long-winded ideological battle; victors packaging promises of flashy freedoms. For others, it marks the beginning of a new era of force; time marching forward in clanking servitude of control societies. To speak of 1989 is to speak of collapse. It is to speak of the many befores and the many afters across multiple centers and peripheries. From the fringes of the former West to the afterworlds of an emergent East and all across the global South, 1989 rips through the primacy of borders, insisting instead, on another vision of life, one built upon our shared and ever-shifting ground.

Hailing from Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, Serbia, Hong Kong, Mexico, Switzerland, Germany, and the US, this exhibition brings together nine artists whose works speak to some element of life after collapse. Widely construed through a diverse collection of painting, drawing, installation art, sculpture, photography, conceptual emptiness, and textile, each artist engages aesthetic, economic, geographic, sociological, political and psychological rupture. Taken together, the exhibition highlights postcollapse as a critical framework for contextualizing the contemporary practices of artists from these dynamic regions since 1989.
