People who have saved this event:


Trauma and Revival sheds light on about 180 works created between 1945 and 1968 by artists from Europe and the former Soviet Union, including Fernand Léger, Vladimir Tatlin, Gerard Richter and Pablo Picasso among others.


Notwithstanding the tensions between Eastern and Western Europe in the years following the Second World War, artists on both sides of the Iron Curtain experimented in similar ways: from media art to action painting, conceptual art and sound art.  Together with the Pushkin Museum in Moscow and the ZKM, BOZAR presents for the first time, an overview of the most important artistic trends that flourished in the years following the Second World War in both Eastern and Western Europe. A significant collaborative project that takes place against the background of a new trial of strength between Europe and Russia.
