For a long time, Romania has been a land for artistic creation which has greatly been able to forge Europe’s cultural imaginary. From Brancusi to Tzara or Bratescu, it has offered us numerous artists who have largely contributed to the most avant-garde movements of our continent.

At the crossroads between tradition and modernity, urbanity and rurality, today’s Romania is a breeding ground of inspiration for emerging artists from other countries.

It is with this spirit that BOZAR and its partners, the National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC) and Cluj Cultural Centre, will gather in Bucharest and Cluj ten artists from Belgium and Romania between May 24th and 29th. During visits, encounters and cross talks, artists will address questions that are central for their practices and how Romania can become a laboratory, an open workshop for active reflection.

Carried out in the framework of the Romanian EU Presidency, this project intends to be an exercise to develop new critical narratives that go beyond established stereotypes.

Follow the artists on their journey through Romania – find their intentions, personal stories and visual fragments of inspiration on our Instagram account.

Participating artists : Carla Swerts, Arjan Vanmeenen, Nadia Guerroui, Meriton Maloku, Camille De Bonhome, Lucian Indrei, Thea Lazăr, Mihai Zgondoiu, Gabriela Mateescu, Lea Rasovszky.
