Today we live a life with a lot of obligations and duties, we don’t have time to remember our good memories, especially our childhood. When we were child we experienced the freedom, above all kinds of freedom, the freedom of mind. We could think and dream about everything, we used to do this all the time, nothing was impossible. But as we grow up, our not just our body changes, but unfortunately our mind also changes. We see and listen things around us that make us think that we have limitations and because of this beliefs we are not able to follow our dreams. The chosen artworks for this exhibition bring us the flavor of the childhood. The desire to come back to the good times is expressed through imperfect lines as we can see on the artworks of Jean-Michel Basquiat, and  and through the simplicity of the shapes and the use of primary colors. Robert Rauschenberg makes us go back not only to our childhood, but through his artwork and life he makes us go back to the life.
