BUCHAREST, ROMANIA (JANUARY 26, 2011) (REUTERS) INTERIOR OF AUCTION HOUSE WITH ITEMS PLACED ON DISPLAY MORE OF COMMUNIST-ERA POSTERS, PHOTOS AND FLAGS ON DISPLAY (SOUNDBITE) (Romanian) ARTMARK HOUSE ART EXPERT, ALIN CIUPALA, SAYING: "Well like it or not, the communist regime period is part of our history and we have to represent it. That's why I think that the Artmark house initiative to offer collectors and those who want to invest in communist regime objects is a good idea. We are trying to approach the communist regime period from a different perspective, other than a scientific, academic or social one. We tried to bring together different objects with the idea to offer an image of what the communist regime represents in Romanian history." MORE OF POSTERS AND PHOTOS/ DETAIL ON POSTER WITH WOMAN READS (Romanian): 'FRESH FRUIT' (SOUNDBITE) (Romanian) CURATOR AT ANAID ART GALLERY, DIANA DOCHIA, SAYING: "I think this auction will offer a different picture of that period. Very few (referring to youth) really know what happened then. Furthermore, the momentum grows to think its "cool" to discuss communism, but the truth is that it was not "cool" at all." MEDALS ON AUCTION ON DISPLAY TIME MAGAZINE COVER DATING TO MARCH 18, 1966 ON DISPLAY (SOUNDBITE) (Romanian) ARTMARK CEO, MANUELA PLAPCIANU, SAYING: "The Golden Age (communist period) was one of the greatest challenges for us. We had to find objects that would represent that. On the one hand it should have historical value and from another for it to be significant for the respective period. For sure, not an easy task; we are trying to be "neutral", having in mind that our role is just to bring to the market those objects. We are also very excited, I don't know, but the public is "obsessed" by that period."
