Contemporary City Foundation   26 february 2007 — 26 march 2007

curator

  • Teresa Mavica

project description

The author of the project is of the opinion, put forth in Boris Groyss article Moscow Romantic Conceptualism( first published in 1979), that the intrigue is seen in the contradiction of these three words (rather than two, as it always seemed), three incompatible notions, creating an inner tension to this day. The word romantic and conceptualism here are suddenly enforced by the precise geographical indication- Moscow (to say New York romantic conceptualism would be an absurdity). These three words, from the very start, created the topic of the whole article. It only remains to grasp what exactly caramel and a botanical garden have to do with this.
