X mm din Y km / X mm von Y km


The artists taking part in "X mm out of Y km" were between 8 and 11 years old at the time of Ceauşescu's downfall. The piece uses a few millimeters from the many kilometers of Securitate files on the Romanian writer Dorin Tudoran, who was finally granted permission to emigrate in July 1985. It examines fun- damental questions within Romanian society: To what degree can the past be reconstructed by working through historical documents? Has the political climate in the country changed? Or is the country still marked by a lack of solidarity, the ignorance of functionaries, and the opportunism of intellectuals?
