Vector Gallery (Iasi, Cuza Voda 41, 1st floor)
launching of "Vector - art and culture in context" magazine with the participation of the editors Matei Bejenaru, Catalin Gheorghe and Cristian Nae
Vector magazine is a contributor for "documenta 12 magazine" which is developing its project in Kassel organizing lunch lectures, presentations and workshops between june 16 - september 23.
In September 10 - 16, the editors of Vector magazine are invited to participate in a series of lunch lectures on the theme of generating public sphere, together with editors from "De Witte Raaf", "Site", "Metropolis M", "Art-ist", "Piktogram", "Ojeblikket" and "Revista de Crítica Cultural" magazines.
Vector - art and culture in context proposes in the opening a new series of presentations of art institutions activating in South East Europe and Middle East, the conception of an Western institutional initiative which is questioning the knowledge exchange between contexts and the first project realized in Iasi in the frame of Backyard Residencies program.
The second contribution of Vector magazine to the documenta 12 magazine editorial project is answering the question "What is Bare Life (Subjectification)?" both by a theoretical text about the resistance through small corruption in communist Romania and by a series of artistic projects proposed by invited artists and curators, talking about the photographic practice as simultaneously integrated and opposed to the practices of identity administration, about life taken on one's own as an artistic project, about hiding in plain sight the politically simplified aggression and about the creative reaction to the neoliberal scenarios.
The section assigned to the recent art theory and criticism approaches the "institutional critique" issue in a range of case studies about the situation of the production and inter-mediation of contemporary art in Bulgaria, Ukraine and Romania.
Other sections discuss situations of alternative everyday lifestyles, of commitments in tactical media or certain arguments about the organization of a film festival.
