MinEastry of Postcollapse Art and Culture is pleased to present part two of 1989, a video screening of shorts by a group of international contemporary artists and collaboratives.
To speak of 1989 is to speak of revolutions. It is to speak of the many ends and many beginnings that carve out multiple centers and peripheries. It is to speak of the absurd and the absolute, the fantastic and the fragmented contours of our contemporary moment. To speak of 1989 is to speak of collapse.
This second installment of 1989 brings the work of established and emerging artists from Romania, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Russia, Poland, Cuba, Suriname, USA, China, Iran, and New Zealand. Their works offer poetic and philosophical reflections on the exhibition theme through a range of experimental video and documentary film, photography, digital animation, music composition, poetry, and performance. Taken together, this screening of shorts highlights postcollapse as a critical framework for contextualizing the contemporary practices of artists from these dynamic regions since 1989.
1989 opens on January 28 and runs until February 13, 2022. MinEastry of Postcollapse Art and Culture is located at 2505 SE 11th Ave Suite 233, Portland OR 97202. The total runtime is approximately one hour.
