25 years after the fall of the Berlin wall, the Exhibition “The Empty Pedestal”  brings together a constellation of more than 40 artists from 20 countries in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, for a total of 100 works. Videos, performances, installations, photographs, drawings and pictorial works of many artists who could not find space inside the socialist culture as well as those of the younger generation that has gained wide international recognition are at the center of this exhibition. The title alludes to a time of waiting and transition, to the ghosts that inhabit it, to something that returns while at the same time has never happened.
