One of the main concerns of tranzit.ro/ București is to relate to its immediate context, both in a geographical and social sense and from a contemporary cultural perspective. From city administrators and planners to film makers, journalists and sociologists, the city is everyday under scrutiny, representing one of the most heated topics in the public debate.
Artists can bring another contribution to this debate, one which is sharpening the problems, showing the hidden particularities, underlining the similarities with other big cities from post-communist countries, or simply projecting their own, transformed images of what Bucharest is.
At the same time this programme links to efforts of other organizations to intervene directly by working with inhabitants and with different activist groups in changing the perception that the city can only improve through top-down decisions and planning.
