June 2011 - December 2012
Various venues, Bucharest

role: co-curator, together with Manuel Pelmus and
Brynjar Abel Bandlien

Caminul Cultural was initiated and co-curated by Manuel Pelmus, Farid Fairuz and Brynjar Bandlien, three artists interested to create a platform for subjective radiographies in performance related projects - in the field of contemporary dance, performance and visual arts - willing to scrutinize in a rather radical and uncompromising manner the artistic and socio-political reality.

Caminul Cultural was conceived as a thinking and action frame, not a particular venue or specific physical space. It is a performative and discursive frame for artistic and political practice, through which absent or marginal issues/topics in Romanian public space are addressed. In a culture dominated by rather traditional and conservative public institutions and art policies, Caminul Cultural intends to become a bridge between independent voices.

The first edition took place between June 2011 and December 2012 in several spaces, galleries and performance halls in Bucharest. The programme contained a series of lectures, performances, interventions, exhibitions, workshops including artists, directors and curators such us: Dan Perjovschi, Róza El-Hassan, Galit Eilat, Antonia Baehr, Taoufiq Izzediou, Ion Grigorescu, Adrian Schiop, Vladimir Us, Raluca Voinea, Alina Serban, Rarita Zbranca, Matei Bejenaru, Anca Benera, Stefan Tiron, Florin Flueras, Sigrid Gareis, Gianina Carbunariu, Madalina Dan, Alexandra Pirici, Nicoleta Braniste, Bogdan Georgescu, Muskovics Gyula, Mihai Gotiu, Alina Popa, Irina Gheorghe.

Texts, statements and interventions of participants at the opening of Caminul Cultural were published in the bilingual edition of the publication ART IN THE END TIMES, which you can DOWNLOAD HERE
