Ciprian Mureşan


Ciprian Mureșan (*1977, living and working in Cluj, Romania) in his multimedia works reflects themes such as religion, post-communism and childhood. Here, he often draws references to the history of art, film and literature. Furthermore, the works take a critical look at the history of Eastern Europe and its relationship to Western Europe. In regard to the relationship between Western and Eastern Europe, the quotations from Western European cultural and artistic production serve to demystify canonical works and lead to a critical consideration of both Western and Eastern European cultural tradition. Pioneers shows youths sniffing glue from a plastic bag. They wear scarves, which refer to the socialist children and youth organizations, the pioneers. Mureşan studied fine art at the Academy of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca and is co-editor of the journal Version and, since 2005, member of the editorial board of the art magazine IDEA arts + society. Mureşan has already participated in several international group and solo exhibitions, including MAK, Vienna (2015); Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art, Budapest (2015; 2012); Tate Modern, London (2012); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2010); Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (2010); 17th Biennale of Sydney (2010); 53rd Venice Biennale (2009); 1st Athens Biennale (2007).
