Exhibition “In Memory Of Paper”

Kaunas Picture Gallery, K. Donelaičio g. 16, Kaunas 2019 05 11 14:00 - 2019 12 31 Web site

The exhibition introduces the former J. Janonis paper factory and its community. Turning points in politics and economy come into view on notebook covers and their margins. The pre-war paper of Petrašiūnai preserves the handwriting of Salomėja Nėris. It also proves the Lithuanian identity in the form of a passport. Finally, having turned into temporary money of the newly restored Lithuania, the Kaunas paper rustles in a pocket. These paper-based history witnesses are sensitively and wittily complemented by the stories of the factory workers and art pieces specially created for the exhibition. “In Memory of Paper” continues the exhibition cycle “The Great Industry” curated by Auksė Petrulienė.
