Transantiquity questions the inclusion of the practice of a group of (contemporary) artists within the framework of our thinking about Antiquity. The exhibition reflects on the definition of Antiquity moving beyond Eurocentric visions and models, and invokes new paradigms in which Antiquity is based, surveying time, history, archaeology and, above all, the construction of identity. Transantiquity does not ignore the founding myths, based on an idea of a liquid time, of an Antiquity that transcends temporal, geographical and cultural borders, and that reaches us in the present day via multiple artistic perspectives.
