While Western Europe was adopting movements like Memphis, Art Deco, Neon Noir, 1980s Romania, my home country, was still under communist rule. This way I was inspired to create a game room, that has the appearance of an arcade game room, a symbol of the 1980s. The room combines the playfulness of my way of working with real stories from Communist Romania. My goal was to create a space, in which the eastern‘s everyday struggles are hidden under a western approach to everyday life. Communist RETROspective is an art installation consisting of three games, inspired by stories from communist Romania, especially 1980s and Nicolae Ceausescu’s rule.
