Lithuania’s art scene discovers history


Lithuanian artists are showing a growing interest in controversial historical subjects, the conservative daily Lietuvos žinios comments approvingly:

Lithuanian history and patriotism have made a comeback as topics in the art scene. The artists are looking back to the deportations, the resistance struggles and January 1991. It’s worth noting that most of them never experienced the repression themselves.

… The generation of directors and actors in their thirties who are no longer newcomers to the stage has become mature enough to gain insights into these painful events.

… In recent years the nature of artistic experiments [on historical themes] has changed dramatically: authentic experiences and documentation have given way to suggestion and an attempt on the part of artists to come up with their own language.
