Pavel Klusák: Memories of a Fictitious Past: Contemporary Music and the Rewriting of History


The inspiration of the 20th century, its art, technology and social phenomena takes many different forms at present. This includes dreaming of a parallel past and the use of old sounds, instruments and stylistic procedures to “rewrite” recent history that never in fact took place.

The resulting works speak of our relationship to the past, as well as of the tension involved in official accounts of history (art, society, successes), which many artists would like to adapt to their own scale of values.
