A Presentation For Bucharest

opening :17 April at 19:00 at Make a Point

The participants of the Master Fine Arts of AKV St. Joost, based in Den Bosch and Breda, the Netherlands visited Bucharest for a short term residency, hosted by Tudor Bratu from Bucharest AIR. We connected with institutions, curators, local artists and international artist-researchers through talks, meetings and workshops.

IMG_8670In a fragmentary way, we discovered Bucharest, through conversations and meetings, by walking and by getting lost. In our Presentation for Bucharest, each of us gives an impression. This can take different forms, from a collaboration to an individual sketch, from a suggestion to an idea, from a work to a question mark.  IMG_9915-1
