Into the Unknown: Moving Images from the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw

Group show with works by Deimantas Narkevicius
Salt, Istanbul
May 28 - August 14, 2022

In November 1989, the iconic Wall separating the ‘communist’ East from the ‘capitalist’ West fell. The demolition of the Wall created a threshold into a new world order and became a new milestone that shaped narratives of past and recent histories. Into the Unknown, organized by Salt in collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, concentrates on art’s ability to disrupt the established historical and cultural narratives in a post-1989 world subsequent to the dissolution of the Eastern Bloc, and seeks alternative subjectivities that go beyond existing and known accounts. Into the Unknown spreads across Salt Beyoğlu and Salt Galata.

Shining a spotlight on a body of work from the 2000s to the present central to the Museum’s moving image collection, the exhibition features works by Diane Severin Nguyen, Nathalie Djurberg, Agnieszka Polska, Józef Robakowski, Duncan Campbell, Deimantas Narkevičius, Shana Moulton, Jananne Al-Ani, Oleksiy Radinsky, Neil Cummings and Marysia Lewandowska. Borrowing its title from Deimantas Narkevičius’s work created for the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Into the Unknown offers a social insight into the former Eastern Bloc as well as modern-day Eastern Europe.
