The Early Years is the title of an international exhibition which curators at the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw have prepared for the KunstWerke Institute of Contemporary Art in Berlin, one of the most prestigious art institutions in Germany. The titular early years span the time from 2005, when the Museum of Modern Art was established, to 2014, when the building of the museum, designed by Christian Kerez, will be opened on Defilad Square in the center of Warsaw.
The exhibition delivers a metaphorical account of the birth and evolution of a new artistic institution. The Museum of Modern Art has prepared the exhibition together with artists who have worked with the museum since the early stage of its development. In Berlin, the artists are showing works which deal with the construction of the museum and the development of Warsaw, including the city's institutional development after 1989.
The Early Years is part of a project called The Promised City, which is a joint cultural initiative by Warsaw and Berlin also involving Mumbai, India and Bucharest, Romania. As part of The Promised City, artists, curators and the cultural and academic communities in Poland, Germany, India and Romania have been coming up with a number of new interdisciplinary artistic productions the common theme of which is the contemplation of dreams, illusions and the search for happiness in modern metropolises. The Promised City is organized by the Polish Institute in Berlin, the Goethe-Institut in Warsaw the Warsaw City Administration.
