exhibition project “Casts” offers more questions than answers: how does
a work of art end up in history, can we say that the original is more
valuable than a copy, and what is the relationship between modernity
and tradition – is modern art only a copy from the classical original?
The exhibition’s structure embodies two approaches to history: a linear
classical interpretation expressed in the Museum exposition, and
anachronistic stories of the present, which are distributed across the
Museum space and, in turn, interact with the nearby casts.
