Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, 19.01–18.03.2018
Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb, presents I AM THE MOUTH with works from Art Collection Telekom. The corporate Art Collection Telekom was initiated by Deutsche Telekom in 2010 and comprises today of some 200 art works by about 60 artists from around 15 countries. The collection has a clear focus on contemporary art from Central and Eastern European countries.
The title of the exhibition I AM THE MOUTH is from a video work by Polish artist Agnieszka Polska. It expresses the characteristic qualities of contemporary art from a region in Europe, which is searching for identity in the global context.

Cantor Arts Center: 07.02.–30.04.2018
Featuring artists from twelve different countries, this exhibition presents a wide range of creative responses to photography as an artistic medium and a communicative tool uniquely suited to modern media landscapes and globalized economies.

Instead, they employ a wide range of materials – from prints and drawings to photocopies and audio installations – to highlight the ways in which photography shapes our understanding of history as well as current events.

A multidisciplinary selection of 200 works will occupy the whole of the Fondation’s building. The works are drawn from all six of the MoMA’s curatorial departments, reflecting the history of the institution and the choices it had made in building its collecting.
