No Feeling Is Final. The Skopje Solidarity Collection @ Trade Fair Palace

The international group exhibition No Feeling Is Final. The Skopje Solidarity Collection revolves around the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) Skopje’s unusual collection of modern works, as well as the historical and political context of this extraordinary project.

After the massive earthquake that hit Skopje in 1963, there was a huge effort to help rebuild the devastated city, as a large-scale gesture of international solidarity. The decision was made to establish a museum of contemporary art as a key cultural element of the reconstruction, and thousands of works were donated to Skopje by artists from around the world.

The collection of MoCA Skopje represents a time capsule of late modernism across the Iron Curtain, as it goes beyond the established Western canon and incorporates works by artists from the former Eastern Bloc (including Czechoslovakia) and artists from the then Third World or Global South.
