ODD [an alternative style gallery] invites cultural critic Vasile Ernu to a screening that reveals aspects of the Soviet underground in the 80's and 90's.
The 80's were home to the last generation of young communists, who no longer wish to build the “bright future”, and instead break it apart through various means. The underground is a central element of this generation boycotting the regime through insubordination and constructing various survival techniques: from work to music, from visual arts and literature to sports and black economy. Ernu will paint the picture of this generation, telling its stories and playing films, videos and music.
