“A Romance with Revolution”
8 August – 12 November, 2017
ACC Galerie, Weimar, Germany
2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the Great Socialist October Revolution in Russia – a jubilee that will be celebrated, however. The greatest liberation act in the history of mankind changed the world, the destiny of an abomination. The USSR that was created thereafter disintegrated in 1991. In 2003, a new revolutionary event broke out – from the rose, orange, cedar, tulip, saffron and jasmine revolution to the Arab Spring (2010-), the Arabellion.
Erbossyn Meldibekov joins a group exhibition in ACC Galerie, Weimar, exactly 100 years after the beginning of the revolution, to ask the questions of legacies, teachings, consequences of epochal events, their aftershocks, the sensibility and form of revolutionary energies and ideas of past upheavals in the present and myths.
