Opening: 04.10.2012, at 06:30 p.m.

Tara (von Neudorf) (born 1974, lives and works in Sibiu) is one of the Romanian’s leading contemporary artists. Notorious for the uncompromising presentation of social and political turmoil, he made huge exhibition installation by old maps and forgotten school cartons and pictorial displays; objects lost and found in the Old Saxon Transylvanian villages.

The exhibition “In the Name of …” is a strong criticism against the war, armed conflict in the name of an ideology more or less subjective. Whose side is the justice: of the abuser or the abused? Abuser and victim change their roles at a time in history. In Tara (von Neudorf)’s hands the showroom turns into a place that is just about to burst into flames.
