“Romania Flashback” in Montjuïc castle until the 11th of January

The photographic exhibition documents the final years of the Ceaușescu dictatorship

From the 1st of October to the 11th of January, 2015, Montjuïc castle is hosting Romania Flashback, a portrait of Romanian society during the final throws of the Nicolae Ceaușescu dictatorship by photographers Florin Andreescu and Andrei Pandele. The exhibition forms part of the Europa 25 programme, a series of five exhibitions curated by journalist Martí Anglada and proposed by the Barcelona City Council in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The exhibition consists of a selection of photographs combining everyday scenes from an impoverished society with photographs of the dramatic and stirring events of the December 1989 revolution that led to the execution of the dictator and his wife - a graphic testimony recorded under cover and out of sight of the rigid controls imposed by the Securitate, the state’s secret police force.

Both Andreescu (1962) and Pandele (1945) live and work in Bucharest and have been photographers for more than 30 years. Andreescu combines photography with film and theatre and Pandele also works as an architect.

Romania Flashback can be seen in Montjuïc castle up until the 11th of January and access to the exhibition is included in the price of entry to the castle, 5 €. More information is available on the Europa 25 website.
