Body, Memory and Repetition
The EAA Virtual Exhibition 2020
“In the beginning were the straight lines and the rhythms”
Professor Dragos Gheorghiu
These words, written well before the Covid19 pandemic, anticipates the sudden need for simplicity, the sudden need for something universal and the sudden need for common understanding that was to become important during the strangely lonesome months of lockdown and social distancing in the spring of 2020.
They also echo one of the key motivations for this virtual exhibition: The curiosity and interest for pre-historic artistic expression and the potential relevance for contemporary art, for artistic thinking and for the understanding of both ancient and contemporary human behaviour and mind.
