Screening and F&Q's with Katharina Koch (film maker), Daniel Knorr (artist), Sabine Hentzsch and Marius Babias (curators). Bucharest is one of the fastest growing cities in Europe, a place where post-communism and globalization have released great tensions in architecture, city planning, and social policy. In this project, the unresolved questions of the recent communist past and current processes of transformation were explored artistically. In 2007, the pilot project "Public Art Bucharest - Spatiul Public Bucuresti" consisted of a series of artistic interventions, discussions, and actions. The project, continued in 2008, is conceived as a platform for interdisciplinary debates intended to inspire critical engagement with political and social factors that define the notion of democracy and publicity. The project will be introduced by the curators and artists, and discussed in the context of current discourses of Public Art.
