Bucureşti: ‘KM. 0. Representation and repetition of the University Square’

kmo_1 Bucureşti invites us on Friday, 30 November 2012 from 7pm, to the opening of the exhibition “Km. 0. Representation and repetition of the University Square”. The exhibition presents different reflections upon the University Square in Bucharest, seen as a “ground zero” of public space in Romania after 1989. While the unresolved conflicts of 1990, which had turned the Square into a memorial place, seemed to vanish from public consciousness, in the beginning of 2012 people gathered there again to voice their discontent and – even if apparently only for a short time – they have regained the Square as a place of free expression and manifestation of civic attitude.

“Km. 0. Representation and repetition of the University Square” presents works realized as reflections upon the Square, documentations of performances already realized in the Square or new works, especially realized for the exhibition. During the opening, from 19:30h to 20:30h, as part of her installation “Nothing lasts but doesn’t pass either”, Alexandra Pirici will present a performance together with Bogdan Drăgănescu, Mădălina Dan, Jean Lorin Sterian, Vlad Basalici.

Participants: Vlad Basalici, studioBASAR, Larisa Crunțeanu, Laurențiu Gâlmeanu, Bogdan Ghiu & Octav Avramescu & studenți ai Universității de Arte Bucureşti, Mihai Mihalcea, Dan Perjovschi, Vlad Petri, Alexandra Pirici, David Schwartz & Mihaela Michailov, Emanuel Vasiliu and others.
