Dionysus floor plan with presentation of artworks at Da Da Majakowski.
Notes to the floor plan
All black and white pictures on this page are from the Dionysus Gallery archive kept by Enno de Kroon. I photographed those prints with my own camera and derived the sequential arrangement of artworks combining views from different pictures. The majority of pictures was taken during the opening of Da Da Majkowski on 25 March 1988, but a few are exhibition views without visitors.
The first part of this page shows the exhibits clockwise, from no. 1 to no. 21, completed with colour reproductions from the exhibition that preceded Rotterdam: "7 Independent Artists Live from Leningrad" at the Young Unknowns Gallery, London See Young Unknowns Gallery, London, February 1988 . In my article dedicated to the London exhibition, the works are numbered differently, and these "London" numbers have been added in brackets.
No "London" colour reproductions are available for paintings 10, 11, 15, and 17. Apparently, these works were not displayed at the Young Unknowns Gallery. Slides of nos. 10, 11 and 15 are, however, in the City of Stockholm's archive, Kulturhuset section.
Attributions of works to artists have been completed with information from Sara Åkerrén's archive in January 2022.
The second part of this page presents those pictures that helped me to determine how the paintings were arranged on the walls of Dionysus Gallery. There exists only a single view of nos. 19, 20, and 21, which means that their position in the upper left "corner" of the floor plan is somewhat hypothetical, although this seems to be the only plausible place where they may have been displayed.
