Ivan Gallery proudly hosts the Bucharest part of “An Abstraction that Dictates Reality (after Geta Brătescu)”, a new live work by Manuel Pelmuş presented by ASSEMBLE in collaboration with the Kunstverein am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz.

In Berlin, Pelmuş presents a 4-day, live exhibition that draws on the imagery and ideas of two revolutionaries, each in their own field, in Berlin of 100 years ago: Rosa Luxemburg and Mary Wigman. Pelmuş is not reenacting or memorializing either of them, instead he is interested in the connection between them as revolutionary women, and draws on elements of their life and work as available ‘ready-mades’ for contemporary meanings. The exhibition proposes many images of the single body as a site of resilience and agency, and embodies the political idea that when one acts alone, the act is always animated by the production of others, even if they do not share the same time or place.
