Casus Pacis - St. Petersburg - Manifesta 10 Parrallel Exhibition

The Laminated Plastics Factory (SLOPLAST)
84 Shosse Revolucii
(entrance on Industrialny Prospekt)
June 28 - Sept 15

The exhibit is dedicated to a tragic anniversary, 100 years since the start of World War I, and to the revolution in Ukraine, inching towards a civil war before our very eyes. A century ago, war redrew the map of Europe. Today, the political map of the world is changing dramatically once again. As great empires collapsed in the early twentieth century, they gave way to new independent nation-states, fuelling a multitude of conflicts that are still playing out today. The period from 1914 to 1918 marks a blank page in the creative biographies of many great artists of that period, as they traded their brushes for rifles and fought across Europe. A hundred years later, history has completed an almost mystical circle. The new generation finds itself back at the starting point of political tensions. In 2014, artists are yet to be drafted into the military, but none of us can escape the information war.

In this environment, progressive artists must be cognizant of their responsibility, and declare their position. The anti-war agenda is one of the most important issues we face today. After all, there is no ‘Undo’ button for events so casually set in motion by politicians in their expensively appointed offices.
