Modern heritage: retrospective, the project of commemoration, initiated by Stal Gallery, in which artists use the lens of history, reflecting on memories from past - old artistic traditions - as a means of assessing today’s highly digitized society. Artists have developed their own vision of this modern movement, creating contextual art variations.
