“Tara (von Neudorf). Cartographer of Sinister History” is the first exhibition of Tara (von Neudorf) in Poland. The exhibition was designed by the two curators, Monika Rydiger and Łukasz Galusek, rather as an exhibition that outlines the most important and representative subjects in Tara’s work than as a chronological exhibition. Tara's concern towards mankind's significant historic events and everyday reality transforms the artist into a "historian", a "cartographer" of the world. His sarcastic style, here and there larded with black humor, generates strong feelings, both by form and critical content. Tara uses themes such as: identity, cultural co-existence and bleeding wounds of history.

 “Tara (von Neudorf). Cartographer of Sinister History” exhibition consists of seven sections, each one giving the opportunity to the viewer to see a distinct theme that Tara approaches in his work. The seven sections – Tara (von Neudorf), Commentator of a neurotic reality, Uncompromising teacher history, Tracker of lost identity, Illustrator of school indoctrination, Unmasker of dark history, Cartographer of mendacious ideologies, – depict a personal interpretation of some traumatic and controversial moments in mankind’s history. 

The exhibition contains more than eighty works of the past fifteen years and is accompanied by a catalog dedicated to the event and edited by International Cultural Centre and Anaid Art Gallery. Partners in the organization of the exhibition were the International Cultural Centre, Krakow, Poland and Anaid Art Gallery, Bucharest, Romania.
