How does a citizen suddenly become a physical non-entity? Invisible Bodies: Conspicuous Mind is an exhibit of contemporary Romanian art that visually confronts the issues of personal identity in everyday life. The exhibit is not only a window into a unique post-communist bloc country but inadvertently produces a subtle, potent dialogue about life today in the United States.
