Buldozer privindu-se în oglindă (Bulldozer watching itself in the mirror)

A project by Cezar Lăzărescu /


8, 9, 10 August 2014
The esplanade of the Iaşi Palace of Culture
Inauguration: Friday, 8 August 2014, 19.00h

In 1997, the Iaşi artist Cezar Lăzărescu imagined a project for the public space around the Câlnic castle, part of an exhibition organised by the Bucharest SOROS Centre for Contemporary Art . His proposal at the time – Buldozer privindu-se în oglindă (Bulldozer watching itself in the mirror) –, however, did not materialise until now, in 2014, when tranzit. ro/ Iași committed to putting it into practice as part of the project Mecanica unui proiect de artă în spațiul public din Iași (The mechanics of a contemporary art project in the public space in Iaşi).

Propaganda walks

A workshop with and for Andreas Fogarasi and Christian Mayer /


Together with: Luminița Apostu, Dan Acostioaei, Florin Bobu, Delia Bulgaru, Bogdan Chelariu, Cezar Lăzărescu, Sorana Lupu, Cristina Moraru, Cristian Nae, Andrei Pripasu, Alex Tănăuceanu and Ionuț Toma.

tranzit. ro/ Iași has organised for two days a marathon event, with a semi-public character, with no photographic documentation. Projection and memory were the main instruments used in order to design and later to reconstitute the 12 tours made in pairs, 1:1. The twelve "guides" (artists, curators, theorists, one architect and one translator from Iași) offered one tour each to one or the other of the two invited artists, the latter being accompanied, as a result on six personal propaganda walks.

Originally designed as a propaganda service that tranzit. ro/ Iaşi could offer its guests, this institutional practice takes one step further and becomes externalised, thus creating infinite possibilities of imagining an urban space, both for the hosts and the guests.

The propaganda walks were designed for the first time as an institutional practice by Livia Pancu, on the occasion of the ENPAP - European Network for Public Art Producers meeting organised by the Vector Association in Iaşi in 2011.

10,000 PENNY OPERA



Friday 8 pm.
13.06.2014

tranzit.ro/ Cluj,
Samuel Brassai Str, no. 5.

Throughout the entire year, you can hear street musicians playing in the various corners of Cluj. They perform mainly in the downtown area, where most people are in a big hurry, just walking right by one another. It used to be thought that music can transform strangers, even very differing people, into one community, so we might imagine that street musicians are very socially engaged people. However, these performers, who have finished their professional studies, are not interested in merely making music; the street also provides an important income for them.
