IPA Bucharest 2014 - Workshops, Platform and Symposium
For the first time, IPA will happen in Bucharest. Yes! Bucharest needs more action art! August 24th - September 7th, 2014
We are happy to invite you to reside and work in Romania’s capital city at the end of this summer. We endure here, like everywhere, the daily struggles, the corporate fascism, the cold distance of passers-by on the street. We have too many huge statues per square meter, while the green spaces are diminishing and the outdoor advertising puts a lot of stress on the public space. If you are looking for inspiration and for a great deal of work, now this is the place. For all basic information about the IPA Summer, please check the IPA Summer History page. You can also download a brief overview from our Donloadsection here. For pictures of the events, please check the IPA Wegallery. The Press review you can find here.
Our dear host and soul mate for the workshops is Platforma Space, an independent artistic space, located in the center of the city. This year, their interest is mainly oriented towards art interventions in a social and political context. Please apply using the online application and please get in touch with any question at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yours Valentina Chirita & Irinel Anghel
