Project description:

"1914" is an art exhibition dedicated to WWI and reflects on three ages: the one that collapsed as soon as the war started, the one in war times and the third period that represents nowadays. The conceptual axis of the exhibition is made of documentary evidences about the early bright days of the broken empire. Those are formal, innovative artworks produced by new artists from Northern and Central Europe - war eyewitnesses and philosophical, contemporary comment.
