Call for participation - Ecologies of Emancipation

-organized by tranzit.ro/Cluj /


1- 5 September 2021

Location: Câmpu Cetății, Mureș County


Between 1-5 September, in Câmpu Cetății, Mureș County, tranzit.org/Cluj will organize the first edition of a yearly summer school dedicated to exploring new critical perspectives in the field of humanities and social sciences. The school aims to provide a meeting space and a catalyst for friendly but also qualified discussions between some of the most promising and relevant current research directions in the field of social sciences, as potential resources for critique and political positioning in today's world.

This year's edition has as its generic theme "Ecologies of Emancipation", in the broadest sense of the terms and in the most diverse configurations of their relationship: what is the relationship between the different systems and subsystems of modernity and their components or inhabitants, and to what extent we can conceive and articulate this relationship in a way that is both politically emancipatory and ecologically realistic. Besides the immediate issue of the global climate crisis and its increasingly frequent and obvious effects, this year's meeting will also try to take a lateral look at this framework of issues, articulating a broader and more multidisciplinary perspective on the solidarity and tensions between the different systems of modernity, as well as on their specific impact and significance in the context of today's political, social and climate crisis.

From local to planetary: changing the way of life

Gilles Clément in dialogue with Civic Movement R-Urban /


27 July 2021, 6 pm
Casa Filipescu-Cesianu, Calea Victoriei 151, Bucharest

“As planetary gardeners, we depend on all the biological diversity that we harness for a living. We must preserve it to ensure a future. What kind of model do we want to develop, to allow both the exploitation of diversity for the benefit of an expanding world population, and the preservation, in quality and quantity terms, of that diversity on which we depend? We must respond to this question as quickly as possible if we are not to succumb to the inevitability of irreversible forces of destruction, but rather to develop in every conceivable field a mental territory of optimism – a garden.” (Gilles Clément, 2021)

Reading Group in the frame of Exhibition as Reading project



July - August 2021

On adult education: Paulo Freire

Paulo Freire had a substantial influence on community and social engaged art, for instance in defining the artist as an educator. For him, literacy was not a technical impediment or a mode of self-improvement, but a limit to participation. Literacy is not only reading the alphabet but also a way of thinking about our mode of participation, the inclusion practices, and the gatekeeping practices of certain social groups. We will examine reading together as a method of inclusion.

Non-linear narratives of the Enlightenment

Lecture by VERONICA LAZĂR /


Friday, 25 June 2021, at 7 PM.

Link for the online event:
https://zoom.us/j/94078367667

Moderator: Dana Domșodi

After decades of sophisticated historical research and professional myth busting, academic and popular images of the Enlightenment seem today to be further apart than ever. However, the political question of the legacies of the Enlightenment, whether salutary or deleterious, is once again in season. This talk will argue, firstly, that these legacies are contextual, contradictory, open-ended and ready to be appropriated in creative ways; and secondly, that more than theories, values or attitudes, critical or political – the quest for peace, rationalism, secularism, tolerance, rights of man etc. -, it was above all a few epistemic dislocations brought about by the Enlightenment that proved to be revolutionary for the modern understanding of history, culture and society.

ON READING AS A SOCIAL RELATION

online reading group /


June, 2021

Participants: Noa Treister, Anca Benera & Arnold Estefan, Baran Carangli, Dana Andrei, Beatrice Anghelache, Cătălin Gheorghe, Maxim Polyakov, Mădălina Muscă, Bogdan Popa, Ovidiu Pop, Valentin Cernat, Smaranda Ursuleanu, Andrei Timofte, Ruxandra Simion, Delia Bulgaru, Florin Bobu, Livia Pancu.

The debate between Jean Luc Nancy and Maurice Blanchot started in the 80’s around the question of the constitution of a community in the exchange surrounding Nancy’s The Inoperative Community and Blanchot’s The Unavowable Community, and recently a belated answer in Nancy’s The Disavowed Community surround the question of reading and the subject. Following these texts we will be asking who is the subject that reads and how is reading always already together. This has extreme relevance to artists and scholars that find themselves frequently outside the conventional professional gathering places like galleries, museums or universities and are craving dialog and a sense of community.
