tranzit.ro in Bucharest, coordinated by Raluca Voinea is working on the project Km. 0, a research exhibition, to be presented at the tranzit.ro space in Bucharest in Autumn 2012.
For its first two years of functioning, tranzit.ro operates under a common conceptual frame, entitled Fiction, Rhetoric and Facts, trying to create the context and facilitate the development of cultural and artistic projects that reflect and operate on the tissue of Romanian society, seen on the larger contemporary background. This programme is concretized in projects realized according to the curatorial conception of each tranzit.ro coordinator and to the local particularities in each city, as well as in larger projects and cooperations.
