”Bubble gum is very tasty in the beginning, but the taste end quickly. Than, all you have to do is just to inflate and pop bubbles endlessly. In this you have no limits. And you will also have candy wrappers - just like glass beads.” (extract from KOLXOZ image: Turbo Bubblegum)

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.

s.a.b.a. - Silvia Amancei și Bogdan Armanu

Thus, we realigned our projects in order to build a set of parallel platform for artistic contributions, mostly with guests artist based in Iasi using the - now banal - Instagram.

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.

Project /

May - November 2021

Through an in depth theoretical and artistic examination of the practice of reading together we will examine how art and culture are becoming an important factor in education and especially peer to peer and intergenerational informal education. As a result, the group exhibitions, the reading groups, the publications will raise awareness and build the capacity of artists and cultural operators to assume this role of educators.

The online presentation of the two projects represents an opportunity to discuss extensively and in an appropriate framework about their cultural and personal foundations.
