All Power to the Imagination

November 20, 2009 – January 24, 2010

All Power to the Imagination! is a new installation specially developed for the Grafisches Kabinett and the facade of the Secession by Romanian artists Mona Vătămanu and Florin Tudor. In this work, the artist duo who have been working together since 2000 explore potentials of resistance, which they understand less as a dogmatic, didactic idea than as a subtle, poetic form of action. The artists’ interest in such an approach matches their skepticism towards political symbols and slogans which make a claim to truth.


Mona Vătămanu, born 1968 in Constanţa, RO, and Florin Tudor, born 1974 in Geneva, CH, live and work in Bucharest.
