The 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.
