GOTHIC: Gothic Revival Experience vs. Enlightenment Pattern

Although generating a large diversity of scientific studies in domains like literature, film, sociology, psychology, etc, Gothic as genuine experience was merely illustrated in exhibitions.
The Gothic exhibition opened at the Brukenthal National Museum is the first permanent one to explore the roots of the phenomenon in the visual arts of the late 18th and the 19th centuries, emphasizing the literary sources and the historical context of Neo-gothic reaction to Enlightenment.
The exhibition concept meets the public taste for gothic stories in an educational, rational approach, relying on aesthetic frames provided by the museum objects and creating a vivid image of a period of cultural turmoil and daring artistic invention.
