“The Property / Proprietate exhibition brings together three works of contemporary art by Mona Vătămanu & Florin Tudor, Ștefan Rusu and Andrei Nacu. By re-contextualizing and re-circulating works of art made a long time ago and in radically different contexts, but also through new commissions, the current exhibition proposes a new methodology of questioning the ideological positions assumed by the authors in relation to the purpose of their action in the public sphere. Property / Proprietate aims at initiating a new moment of reflection, a moment that is encouraged also by the participation of the invited artists at the homonymous seminar coordinated by the artist and curator Noa Treister and realized with other artists, activists or cultural workers.

The workshop will discuss the issue of the relation between individuality (individual creativity, invention, innovation, entrepreneurship, authorship) as private property and privileges (rights) in the form of physical and intellectual property and creation, knowledge, production as a social relation in the form of collective property, commons or socially owned property.” (Noa Treister)

List of works:
Mona Vătămanu & Florin Tudor: Land distribution, installation, 2010-2014
Ștefan Rusu: The apartment from the Victory of Socialism Boulevard, intervention in the public space, 2018

Curated by Livia Pancu & Florin Bobu
