press release

For the first time, in cooperation with the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow and the ZKM in Karlsruhe, BOZAR presents a survey of the artistic trends that flourished in Eastern and Western Europe after the Second World War. Despite the political tensions and the background of the Cold War, artists on both sides of the Iron Curtain experimented with similar art forms such as media art, action painting, conceptual art, and sound art.

Facing the Future: Art in Europe 1945–68 sheds light on a vibrant period in the recent history of art via 200 works by 150 artists from 18 European countries, including the former Soviet Union.
