The Institute of the Present launches the micro-publications series in bilingual format (Romanian / English) dedicated to an artist or to a significant event or action in the field of visual and performing culture. Parkour recomposes an atlas of personal narratives shared by artists in the form of an interview and a self-chronology, mediating better or less-known histories. In a conscious effort to record the strong link between art and life, the chronologies outlined together with the artists prompt a re-reading of the personal development along the following chapters: artistic concepts and interests; events and trips; affinities; friends. In 2017, the first publications are dedicated to artists: Miriam Răducanu, Constantin Flondor, Ion Grigorescu, Octavian Nemescu and Lia Perjovschi.
