The international exhibition “Over the Counter”, opened on June 17 at the Mücsarnok Modern Art Gallery in Budapest is graced by the presence of artists Matei Bejenaru, Mona Vatamanu and Florin Tudor who created their installations on the spot. The exhibition also includes works by Mircea Cantor and Dan Perjovschi. Inspired by economic events in Europe’s recent past, as well as by the present economic crisis, the exhibition explores the illusions, utopias and despair sprung from the negative feedback of capitalism. Whether we speak of avoiding the supremacy of rules, or of the mutual influences exercised by economic markets, in the end what maters is the result: the product exhibited on the stall, which the common man interacts with. According to ICR Budapest, alongside the works of Romanian artists visitors may see works of other artists in the European space: Bukta Imre, Olga Chernysheva, Anetta Chisa, Lucia Tkácová, Erhardt Miklós, Andreas Fogarasi, Kristina Inciuraité, Interorient, Keserue Zsolt, Margareta Kern, Johanna Kandl, Yuri Leiderman, Kristina Leko, Anna Molska, Anna Molska, Deimantas Narkevicius, Nemes Csaba, Lucia Nimcova, Uriel Orlow, Katerina Sedá, Société Réaliste, Mladen Stilinovic, Lukasz Skapski, Clemens von Wedermeyer, Kamen Stojanov.
