  BALAGAN!!! NORDWIND presents exhibition at three locations in Berlin

18.09.2015: Balagan!!! is a popular and much used exclamation in contemporary Russian art that describes, with celebratory gusto, a farce, and the most unholy of cock-ups. Balagan also stands for an artistic strategy that tries to reconcile the struggles of contemporary life with a desire for a new, hopefully better, life and art. Curated by David Elliott for the Northwind Festival and MOMENTUM, the exhibition includes over 150 artworks by 65 artists from 15 countries from the former ‘East’, and includes a diverse panorama of artistic visions and strategies.
