The comprehensive, international group exhibition No Feeling Is Final. The Skopje Solidarity Collection revolves around the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) Skopje’s unusual collection of modern works, as well as the historical and political context of this extraordinary project.
After the massive earthquake that hit Skopje in 1963, there was a huge effort to help rebuild the devastated city, as a large-scale gesture of international solidarity. The decision was made to establish a museum of contemporary art as a key cultural element of the reconstruction, and thousands of works were donated to Skopje by artists from around the world.
Four artists and one artist duo – Brook Andrew (Melbourne), Yane Calovski & Hristina lvanoska (Skopje), Siniša Ilić (Belgrade), Iman lssa (Berlin), and Gülsün Karamustafa (Istanbul) – selected works from the collection and added their own contemporary works, bringing their vision of MoCA’s collection into intimate relation with their respective artistic practices.
Furthermore, renowned photographer Elfie Semotan (Vienna) documented the cityscape of Skopje and the museum through her unique way of photographic storytelling.
