Face the unexpected: Media art from Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania

Museum am Ostwall | 05/16/2006 - 07/23/2006

The exhibition at the Museum am Ostwall and the PHOENIX Halle Dortmund presents 29 installations, videos, and photo series by 23 artists form Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The exhibition’s German title “mit allem rechnen” can be understood in both figurative and literal senses. “To count on anything” means to be ready for anything at a time in which anything is (or seems) possible.

Therefore many works refer to personal stories and individual experiences in the context of the collective past, which is largely connected to state socialism. But the title also has an economic meaning. To have to “count on anything” refers to the extreme pressure for individuals and society to adapt, succeed, and survive under conditions of radical transition from a planned state socialist economy as a part of the Soviet Union to a free market economy in the framework of the European Union.
