When is happiness possible?

Exhibition by h.arta group /


Opening: 17 April 2014, 7 pm

tranzit. ro/ Cluj
Str. Brassai Sámuel, nr. 5

Curator: Attila Tordai-S.

Is happiness an individual matter, is it possible in the vicinity of others` unhappiness? In a context of extreme right discourses becoming increasingly visible in the public space, where the intrusion of capital in all aspects of society being increasingly obvious, where losing the inalienable rights such as water and clean air are lost, and the extreme disrespect for life becomes acceptable, how to overcome the idea of happiness as a prescription, of happiness as a duty of the neoliberal individual? The project examines the promotion of violence, the removal and concealment of those unhappy, the double standards, the transforming of despair and poverty in individual guilt in a society where the word "happiness" follows us from billboards, from media, from the norms of everyday life.

The tranzit.ro/ Iaşi Library – Cristian NAE: Creative reading workshops – Ways of artistic knowledge

March – April 2014 /

tranzit.ro/ Iaşi
7-9 Al. Lăpuşneanu St.


Over the past two years, tranzit.ro/ Iaşi managed to acquire a selection of books – which did not necessarily follow a precise concept – in order to create a small-scale public library related to contemporary art and curating. This process made us think about how libraries are built according to various subjectivities, and therefore the natural way to grow our book collection would be to have it designed by our audience in workshops and other kind of construction processes, involving the periodic commitment of a certain group of people. Hence, we thought about inviting someone whose academic and curatorial skills, alongside with a solid knowledge of the local audience, would engage in such a process, in the shape of a series of workshops.

Cristina DAVID, artist in residence at tranzit. ro/ Iași

March – May 2014 /


A new project will start with the residency of Bucharest-based international Romanian artist Cristina David. She will inaugurate in March the newest chapter of tranzit. ro/ Iaşi regarding the residency program venture in our city. This invitation was sent after the encounter with her application for the AiR programme of tranzit and the ERSTE Foundation at MuseumsQuartier - 2014, a project that tranzit. ro/ Iaşi is very keen to produce in Iaşi. Cristina will collaborate for this project with the Danish writer Mikkel Rosengaard. Being interested a priori in the "democracy" of the "openness of calls" in the arts domain, tranzit. ro/ Iaşi is thus trying to question this issue both as its own practice, as well as the others' practice in the art world.

LOST AND LOST

A project by ZSOLT VISKY (Gilles the Postman) /


Opening: Friday, 28 February, 2014, at 8 pm.
Venue: tranzit. ro/ Cluj, Brassai Sámuel Str., nr. 5, Cluj

opening speech:
Zsuzsa Selyem


Lost and Lost grew out of the project Gilles, the Postman. Zsolt Visky initiated and carried out a slow courier service transporting small packages from person to person throughout Europe by bicycle. Starting in Cluj, he connected people across great distances, delivering to Budapest, Vienna, Venice, Basel, Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, Brussels, Luxembourg, Paris, London and many places in between, inviting participants to be a part of what happened in the time and space covered by the route. The project aimed to slow down interactions, showing a different way to relate to the fast-paced world, while proposing an alternative way to communicate with the people in our lives.
