Public guided tour in English of the exhibition When The Sun Is Low – The Shadows Are Long with the artists and the curator Anna Karpenko.
The exhibition links contemporary positions of Belarusian art with two historical references. It highlights the interplay between an interest in tradition, the archaic and cosmology on the one hand, and a striving towards a pure form of modernist avant-garde on the other. The works of twenty Belarusian artists reflect various forms of resistance against repressive systems, whether they be the appropriation of ritual practices, artistic expression through amateur cosmology or the invention of a new language or a game.
The participation in the guided tour is included in the museum admission.
