Parallel Spaces - The documentation of unofficial art events in 80's
6 – 28 Oct 2011
The 80´s was a time of slow change of the social and cultural climate. The art was divided into the official branches, respected by authorities, and branches lot less official, rather private, forced to stand in opposi¬tion to the bureaucratic, cultural and political pressure. Both branches coexisted next to each other, and by their crossing, quite a wide grey zone emerged, which enabled the existence to all the artists. Under the surface of a so called official art, the scene was alive with its extensive and wide array of activities. The artists, ignored by the state and union institutions, had created their own subculture, which had replaced the traditional critics, media, and art spaces, and enabled the immensely important art confrontation meetings.
