Victoria Art Center for Contemporary Cultural Production is a space dedicated to contemporary art, which was created by a private initiative. It is one of the most dynamic contemporary art galleries in Romania, promoting emerging and already established Romanian and international artists. It was also imagined to stimulate and facilitate the international cultural exchange, to create the frame for interdisciplinary dialogue through debates, book launching, and educational programs.
The gender dimension of the city – Here is an unapproached subject until now in the romanian research in the field of Gender Studies. Is the city a safe and friendly space for women, at macro level (urban politics), at messo level (local planning) or at micro level (everyday practices)? Is the city planned and built also taking into account the needs of women, with their diversity regarding their age, ethnicity, social status, education or health?
he Supervisions project was born from the desire of five artists: Rouka B.Lescaut, Anca Diaconu, Delphine Poitevin, Masha Schmidt, and Mireille Vautier. They aim to put together creations that have in common the same artistic approach. In this world that runs faster and faster, they want to offer a dreaming moment, a breathing break, a relaxing episode like stopping in front of an image, slowing everything down to better observe objects.
Under the shelter of the persona– the lucrative unicorn mask of the Viennese accordionist – The Unicorn Tales are played, with original decorums, urban or natural, but never with masks, make-up or costumes. The tales are allegories in which the antiphrasis and the sometimes absurd humour interlace with realities delivered in a rough style, without thesism, without the desire to give a lesson or to offer a critical position and without any dose of melodrama.
