Loredana Bianconi: Do You Remember Revolution?


Still from Do You Remember Revolution?, 1997

27 January 2014 - 26 April 2015
Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova, Ljubljana


You are cordially invited to attend the opening of the exhibition Do You Remember Revolution? on Tuesday, 27 January at 8 p.m. at the MSUM, Maistrova 3.

In Italy, in the mid-1970s, Adriana, Barbara, Nadia and Susanna were 20 years old when they decided to join the armed struggle and leave behind their social life and their families in order to make the revolution the centre and the aim of their existence. Today they reappear, after many years in prison, and they try, each of them, to recount their own experiences. They speak about the political reasons which initially sustained them, the conflicts, the doubts, and the moments of being torn apart, which marked out their lives as women caught up in the vortex of war. A course of events which ended in the condemnation of the armed struggle and the pain of the lives that were destroyed - their victims' lives and their own.

MG: 20th CENTURY / CONTINUITIES AND RUPTURES



Moderna galerija / Museum of Modern Art, Cankarjeva 15

The 20th Century / Continuities and Ruptures exhibition breaks with traditional linearity by introducing the topics of the 20th century avant-gardes and of the art of the Partisan resistance, bringing them into the national history of art on an equal footing with more familiar trends and, as a consequence, casting new light on the latter.
