Exhibition “YOU’VE GOT 1243 UNREAD MESSAGES. The Last Generation Before the Internet” A cross-disciplinary exhibition “YOU’VE GOT 1243 UNREAD MESSAGES. The Last Generation Before the Internet”. Their Lives.” was on view at the main building of the Latvian National Museum of Art from 9 December 2017 to 4 February 2018. The exhibition dealt with the recent past when the search for oneself and others took place in an analogue instead of a digital environment. It is the story of self-exploration and social networks in the last decades before the arrival of the Internet, told through a cross-disciplinary display of artworks next to a selection of quotidian forms of creativity.
