The exhibition Museum of Parallel Narratives. In the framework of L'Internationale brought together more than a hundred works by some seventy artists and offered an overview of the avant-garde art produced in Eastern Europe from 1961 to the present. The majority of works were drawn from the Arteast 2000+ Collection at the Moderna galerija in Ljubljana, but seven were created specifically for the exhibition: four of these engaged in a kind of self-historisation and creation of parallel archives (Artpool, Zofia Kulik, Július Koller and Lia Perjovschi) and three were "fictitious mini-collections", which set up connections between Western and Eastern artists (Alexander Dorner, IRWIN and Mladen Stilinović).

This exhibition was the first project organised within the framework of L'Internationale, a transnational organisation founded in 2009 in order to instigate new narratives, latitudes and chronologies of the art history of the second half of the twentieth century, and to encourage collaborations among museums and archives. The founding partners of L'Internationale are Moderna galerija, Ljubljana, the Július Koller Society (SJK), Bratislava, the Van Abbemuseum (VAM), Eindhoven, the Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst(M HKA), Antwerp and the MACBA.

Most of the works included in the exhibition at the MACBA had been created during dictatorial regimes and confronted the lack of freedom through performative experimentation, political dissidence, poetic practice and a spirit of constant physical and conceptual research.
