Mudam hosts two new exhibitions.
"Post-Capital: Art and the Economics of the Digital Age" will exhibit sculptures, paintings, pictures, and special performances, which all revolve around the nature of production, consumption, and wealth.
The exhibition derived its name from the 1993 book Post Capital Society, which predicted that the implications of information technology on the job market would increase to a point where they would bring about the collapse of capitalism by the year 2020.
While capitalism may not have fallen, it is certainly true that information technology has significantly changed employment, currencies, goods, and consumption. 21 artists have therefore channeled their efforts in this new exhibition to address these topics.
English artist Robert Hiorns has even decided to incorporate a Soviet fighter jet in his work, which means that the giant aircraft had to be fitted through the entrance of Mudam museum.

In the context of the exhibition's opening, Croatian artist Nora Turato will do a spoken word performance, entitled "What Is Dead May Never Die", at 3.00 p.m. on 2 October.

For the firs time, Mudam will host a two-week-long performance week, which will run from 3 to 17 October. The theme will be "The Illusion of the End" and bring together an array of internationally renowned artists from Germany, Italy, Poland, Russia, and Switzerland.
