Exits and Parallel Worlds

The third section of the exhibition, Exits and Parallel Worlds, presents the alterative spaces and communities of cultural production and consumption and the everyday modes of a life which had been made bearable. Here, attention is given to activities and forms of expressions which went largely unnoticed by the regime and which defined themselves not on the basis of specific political stances, but rather on the basis of their cultural, artistic, religious, ethnographic, or popular music tastes. For many people, the theater productions which were held in private apartments, the dance houses, the concerts, and the fashion walks offered a creative setting in which they could be sincere, liberated, and at times even willful and rebellious. These spaces of creative engagement also made it possible for them to create and maintain culturally vibrant lives.
