João Tabarra & Andrei Ujică. Allegro Molto Lento – b

The Future Museum’s 2017 program objectives are to articulate the position of Romanian artists who were born in Romania and then either settled in another country or spent many years abroad. The programme started in May 2017 with the solo exhibition by Ovidiu Anton and the summer season continued with Anetta Mona Chisa & Lucia Tkáčová and this autumn’s exhibition is a collaboration between the artist João Tabarra and the film director Andrei Ujică.

João Tabarra's site-specific installation ‘Allegro Molto Lento – b’ reinterprets Andrei Ujică film trilogy Videograms of a Revolution (1992), Out of the Present (1995) and The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceauşescu (2010) in the gallery context which is dismantling Ujica's syntactic films into another reading – turning our perspective from the narrative medium, in our case from three particular historical events to one comprehensive Ujica's complexity.

João Tabarra (Lisbon, 1966) studied photography at Ar.Co (Centre for Art and Visual Communication) and currently lives and works in Lisbon. He began exhibiting regularly at the end of the 80’s, having today a solid path that includes participating in important national and international exhibitions, both individually and as part of collectives. He is represented in prestigious (institutional and private) collections to which his artworks belong, both in Portugal and abroad.

Andrei Ujică (Timişoara, 1951) studied literature in Timişoara, Bucharest, and Heidelberg. In 1981 he emigrated to Germany. After publishing poetry, prose and essays throughout the 60’s and 70’s he became a filmmaker at the beginning of the 90’s thanks to his exile and to the encounter with Harun Farocki. His first film, Videograms of a Revolution (1992), is considered one of the 10 most subversive films ever made.
