1989: End of History or Beginning of Future?

The “annus mirabilis” 1989 marked a paradigm shift. The breath of history wafted through the collective consciousness and a cheerful, yet incredulous “Wow!” was on everybody’s lips. 1989 stands for the opening of the Iron Curtain and the fall of the Berlin Wall. That year is the starting-point and key year of the exhibition 1989. End of History or Beginning of the Future? on view at the Kunsthalle in Vienna until February 7, 2010. The title emphasizes that history continues to be written –contrary to the famous thesis of political scientist Francis Fukuyama.
