Mircea Cantor will participate in the group show La Brique, The Brick, Cărămida curated by Ami Barak at La Kunsthalle Mulhouse / February 14 – April 28, 2019 /
As part of the France-Romania Season 2019, La Kunsthalle presents La Brique, The Brick, Cărămida, a modern and contemporary art exhibition. The initiative of such an exhibition comes from the collector and benefactor from Timișoara, Ovidiu Șandor, and his desire to share his choices and passion for art in this French city twinned with his, Mulhouse. The opportunity is thus to open the doors on an intimate world, have an insight into the modern and contemporary Romanian narrative and a better understanding of the complex history of this country. This exhibition presents a committed and creative artistic scene from the early 20th century to this day.
The title of the exhibition is borrowed from an emblematic work by Ana Lupaș, an iconic figure of the avant-garde and undoubtedly a major discovery of the greatest museums in the world. It puts one brick after another in a building that is the founding act of a wonderful cultural enterprise.

Omer Fast will be part of Truth That Lies group show at IMPAKT Center for Media Culture, Utrecht / Fabruary 9th – March 17th from 12-5pm.
Social media sites and search engines are the key ingredients of the change from the manipulative form of propaganda of the past to the prevalence of the Post-truth paradigm of the present. How are words and ideas used to obscure and manipulate? The exhibition and panel discussion of Truth That Lies look at the different political and cultural strategies that have been used in our Post-truth reality and in our recent history.
Inspired by George Orwell’s prescient novel 1984, the events take the shape of the two agencies in The Ministry of Truth, the propaganda agency of 1984’s dystopian government: the Fiction and the Records Department. The Fiction Department is represented by Truth That Lies, an exhibition exploring a use of language through gesture, manipulation, hate speech, algorithm, propaganda, make-believe or tautology.
Also on view is a solo show by David Maljkovic at the Renaissance Society (at the University of Chicago) / Throughout an ever-shifting body of work, David Maljković returns to “the question of form,” asking how considerations of form itself might illuminate the ebb and flow of ideologies / February 9 – April 19, 2019
