We Could Have Had It All: Itziar BARRIO

Presentation and screening /

Thursday, 15th of May 2014, 7.30 p.m., at the new location of tranzit.ro/ Iași.
Alexandru Lăpușneanu Street
No. 7-9, Iași

In 2012, Itziar BARRIO was commissioned to realize a new work in the frame of ”Going Public, Telling as it is?” - ENPAP Symposium in Bilbao. The project ”We could Have had it all” was the result of her re-encounter with her native city in relation with her own topics of research and Consonni team, the institution that coordinated the production of the project in the frame of the European Network for Public Art Producers’s final event. Back in time, it was a question that transformed this work into an on-going process: “How would you transform this work into a site specific project somewhere else?”, a question that was based on a very personal, basic juxtaposition of images of the Arriaga Theatre in Bilbao and the National Theatre in Iași.

Book launch and open discussion: Which side are you on?

book launch moderated by Florin Poenaru /

Time: Friday, 21 February 2014, 7 pm.
Venue: tranzit. ro/ Cluj, Brassai Sámuel Street, no. 5, Cluj-Napoca

After the book launch, there will be a discussion moderated by the members of the CriticAtac online editorial on the theme Which side are you on?


After months of protests in which most of the observers and of the participants still refused to recognize a potential anti-capitalist movement, after tens of public delimitations and retractions from any articulated critique of the ongoing economic injustice, perhaps the shortest way to revive and coagulate the left would consist in identifying our common enemies.

tranzit.ro/ Cluj - Social Forum Cluj-Napoca: The Commons of the Left



We invite you to Cluj, between 24-26 May 2013, to discuss about our collective and individual activists struggles carried out in different arenas and around multiple issues. Our emancipatory projects are related to fundamental aspects for us as individuals and for our collective survival and dignity. We want a just world, in which issues of living in society can be politicized, transformed and negotiated collectively. Authority over the structure of the social fabric is to be held collectively. While we may prioritize differently what the central issues or the central node of emancipation are, our strength is that we can see them as interrelated. Even if not always explicitly, we carry these fights together.
