»Transnistria seen from within:
a portrait by young photographers«

Carolina Dutca, Ramin Mazur, Mikhail Kalarashan, Anton Polyakov

Curated by Anna Eckold & Franca Wohlt

Transnistria is a de facto state within the Republic of Moldova that declared themselves independent during the dissolution of the Soviet Union from 1990-1992. Today it is an internationally unrecognized state with approximately 475.000 inhabitants.

At the same time it has typical features of a state such as currency, administration, military, and its own education system. The situation has currently reached a seemingly tolerated status quo that allows people to go about their daily lives. How do the artists, who continue to live and produce work in Transnistria, view their home? What do they experience on a daily basis? Upheaval, protests, persistence, failure?

This group exhibition sheds light onto these questions and introduces individual insights about this developing region. Documentary, journalistic, and conceptual images reflect the very personal, social, and political issues.
