Anguish and Enthusiasm: What Do You Do With Your Revolution Once You’ve Got It
Anguish and Enthusiasm is an extraordinary group show of new and recent contemporary art from across the globe exploring the concept of a successful revolution.
While revolutions can serve as landmark shifts in the history of a nation, people or a cause, it is often the post-revolutionary period that reveals most about the mindset and outlook of those that map the new terrain.
Frequently followed by Civil Wars and purges, many ideological principles – and people themselves – fall by the wayside. What makes a successful revolutionary? And who gets to decide?
The exhibition will be accompanied by a film programme plus a series of in-depth events exploring these issues.
