What is Modern Art (Group Show)


"What is Modern Art (Group Show)" is a collection of significant anonymous art projects, rooted in the Yugoslavian art scene of the 1970s and 80s which contributed to the creation of a radical form of appropriation art. The anonymous writers refer to key exhibitions of the 20th century and reconstruct their specific art-historical narratives through the use of copies. "What is Modern Art (Group Show)" is the first international exhibition which features this particular form of appropriation art in an extensive group exhibition.
