Until January 16th 2011 – Centro de Arte Moderna – Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation

THE EXHIBITION offers the comparison between works from the beginning of the 20th and 21st centuries taking into account problems which debate the context and nature of the Res Publica and of the republic’s social heritage in the current globalized work.

With a national blueprint, the exhibition also includes works from foreign artists underlining or even enhancing aspects of the developed approach.
Public causes, their emergence and community strength are necessarily present in the artistic act, from the more private to the utterly political or simply collective one.
In the beginning of the 20th century in Portugal, the Res Publica is reviewed taking into account ideals and critical perspectives wishing for the renewal, but the facts portray an estranged reality of it.
In the beginning of the 21st century the Res Publica is the subject and the object of not only social but civilisation’s lack of guidance.
The exhibition aims to map out these realities, exhibiting works from those two moments, a century apart, and yet united by their theme.
