The catalogue, published on the occasion of Geta Brӑtescu - Adrian Ghenie - Ciprian Mureşan - Şerban Savu (20 september 2019 - 11 january 2020) exhibition, curated by Pier Paolo Pancotto, tells about an original project stemming from an interplay of continual cross-references between the artists and the historical and cultural context in which they are operating.

The dynamism of the responses to the stimuli coming from the location and the relationship with the other works results in a concerted site-specific visual journey that establishes a dialectical exchange between the paintings of Adrian Ghenie and Şerban Savu, the drawings, sculptures and videos of Ciprian Mureşan and some rare examples of Geta Brătescu’s graphic, photographic and film work. Four artists from different generations who use different languages to express themselves, but who share not only a common Eastern European origin but also the same approach to the artist’s craft, centred on the concept of creative discipline.In the practice of each artist, the theme takes on a different expressive character, but always turns around some recurrent motifs: the studio, understood as ideal microcosm; the weight of history and of cultural tradition; the relationship with the masters of the past; the artist’s role in society and the elective affinity that binds them together in different ways.
