Catalogue Note

"There was no culture of winning. Winning under a dictatorship is to make a deal with the power, which is a moral dead end. A black hole. I realized how complicated the history of Eastern Europe is from a moral perspective, from a psychological perspective, because almost everybody was, at the same time, both killer and victim."
Adrian Ghenie
in conversation with Rachel Wolff, in: 'IN THE STUDIO: Romanian Painter Adrian Ghenie's Sinister Mythology', Art + Auction, 5 March 2013, online
