Because we care about the future of Romanian independent art scene and we believe it can bring fresh air into the international landscape, we invite each year foreign guests to discover it. Our role in organizing the Platform is to provide a framework of understanding and presentation of the local creation context. The meeting that we propose will try to answer questions like: what are the issues that concern independent artists in Romania and why are they preoccupied by them? how are the local production conditions creating boundaries but also challenge new aesthetic solutions? what new production mechanisms should we invent to be able to save the independent creation?
