This outstanding exhibition presents a selection of representative collections of five regional contemporary art centres FRAC (Fonds régionaux d´art contemporain) from East France (Alsace, Bourgogne, Champagne-Ardenne, Franche-Comté a Lorraine), where you can find works by 30 top French and international artists, such as: Hilla and Bernd Becher, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, Jonas Dahlberg, Hubert Duprat, Douglas Gordon, Piere Huyghe, Bernard Lavier, Allan Sekula, Thomas Struth, Erwin Wurm, Chen Zhen and many others.

The exhibition attempts at exploring the actual tendencies of visual art after 1980. The project is realized by Vladimír Beskid and Viera Jančeková and the curators for once focused on the urban environment and its architecture, symbols and fragments, as well as media background and social stratification. The other meaning of the exhibition reflects distortion of today's world by dominating mass(media) and techno-images as it records global urban planning structures as well as petty individual stories that are enacted within this setting. That is why the curators chose for the exhibition objects and installations with the theme of housing, architecture and a wide range of new media (photography, video, video-installation). These works represent today's world seen by contemporary artists and the manner in which "information takes shape", the way news spreads through technical media…

For the space of former Jewish Synagogue and the extension of the Koppel House which hauses Permanent Exhibition of Sculptural Works by Jan Koniarek were selected works that correspond to this specific environment in terms of programme and which respect the particularity of our space. Meditative installation by Céleste Boursier-Mougenot and Carsten Nicolai's object employing sound and vibrations mediated through water are presented at the Synagogue - Centre of Contemporary Art. The Permanent Exhibition of Sculptural Works by Jan Koniarek is for the first time confronted with the non-classical sculpture which is not based on the principles of modelling material. The exhibition shows a wide range of works - objects, that reflect contemporary visual thinking in space by artists: Patrice Carré, Jimie Durham, Matthew Mc Caslin, Peter Rösel and others.

On Tuesday, October 25, 2005 at 5 pm there was a presentation of the video-art from the collections of FRAC du Grand Est by Eva Gonzalez-Sancho, director of Frac Dijon at the Trnava University (Univerzitne sq. 1, Trnava) introducing video-pieces from the authors as Peter Downsbrough, Thomas Hirschhorn, Patty Chang, Veronique Joumard, Pia Romicke.
