Designed as an arch between past and present, the exhibition will gather photographs from archive collections, some of which have not been exposed to the general public so far. The photographs originate from the archives of the Civic Academy Foundation, the Corneliu Coposu Foundation, the Ratiu Center for Democracy, the Memorial of the Revolution in Timisoara and the collections of independent photographers. The idea of ​​the exhibition started from a cooperation between the Ține de Noi Association, the Civic Academy Foundation and the Corneliu Coposu Foundation, with the support of independent photographer Dan Bălănescu. The photographs and installations of the exhibition propose a comparative analysis of the protests in Romania from the last 75 years. The novelty of the exhibition comes from the form of presentation of archive photographs. It is relevant how between historical periods and very different cultural-political contexts, the essence of the protest appears identical, thus the viewer being asked to analyze the snapshots, and to draw their own conclusions. The exhibition can be visited from September 17th to October 14th, 2019, from Monday to Sunday, between 10.00 and 18.00. Admission is free. The event is organized by the Tine de Noi Association in partnership with the Hanns Seidel Romania Foundation, the Civic Academy Foundation, the Corneliu Coposu Foundation, the Ratiu Centre for Democracy and the National Theatre of Bucharest, with the participation of the Activist's House.
