The exhibition of photography will be opened until 28.01.2007. All selected works are focused on the problem which as a concept (and a question) of this project has been posed: The artist’s attitude is the most authentic expression of what is going on in the society. In a world where the individual is rejected because of the power of any kind and in a world in which all spheres of interest are focused on globalization, the power of the artist could be the strongest weapon against it. Can the artist be identified through his (her) own act of creating (as the most important one) considering the fact that the new visions and attitudes are changing the image of the future world?
