The meeting. Stolen past
The Meeting. Stolen Past is an artistic exploration of utopian Soviet architecture as a memory landscape. The modern cityscape has been transformed in three ways: semantically, functionally and personally. The semantic layer involved renaming streets and buildings. The functional aspect meant changing their function and architectural structure. The personal transformation refers to the reinvention of a fictional past based on the new reality. Films and objects by Kristina Inčiūraitė and Cooltūristės uncover all three layers of
the hidden past in different locations. Soviet modernist buildings are still haunted by the past, but old myths generate new stories and performances.
