Proiectul cultural RO ARCHIVE, initiat de arhitectul si artistul vizual Iosif Kiraly, sub egida Universitatii de Arte din Bucuresti, propune o echipa dinamica de curatori, artisti, sociologi, unii inca studenti, masteranzi sau doctoranzi. Printre acestia se numara: Raluca Nestor, Raluca Ionescu, Cristiana Radu, Anca Mihulet, Bogdan Bordeianu, Michele Bressan, Bogdan Garbovan, Cosmin Moldovan, Simona Dumitriu.

Avand ca principal obiectiv de/reconstructia imaginii unei Romanii recent integrate, demersul are la baza proiectarea unei arhive culturale de texte si imagini. Printre rezultatele urmarite se numara un site de prezentare, care da posibilitatea de acces on line a informatiilor arhivate, workshop-uri, evenimente expozitionale.

Initiativa presupune o retea de parteneriate internationale care asigura promovarea rezultatelor in spatiul U E cat si parteneriate nationale printre care cel cu Asociatia Vector din Iasi. O alta colaborare este cea cu Galeria de Arta Contemporana a muzeului Brukenthal, galerie care a gazduit prima expozitie RO ARCHIVE si care in anii urmatori si-a propus sa reitereze evenimentul.

Organizata dupa modelul unei retele de structuri artistice dinamice (fie acestea proiecte de tip work in progress ori actori culturali interpretati ca branduri) arhiva tinteste obiectivitatea prin pluralitatea abordarilor si diversitatea mesajelor autorilor sai.

RO ARCHIVE propune un demers centrat pe modelul arhivei postmoderne si poststructuraliste. Ceea ce in acceptiune moderna semnifica o colectie de obiecte culturale conservate intru marturia trecutului identitar, devine in contemporaneitate forma de expresie artistica, factor supraordonator sau filtru al redundantei culturale. Nemaifiind limitata la conditia de recuzita a trecutului, arhiva este libera a participa la cartografierea prezentului si la fabricarea noului.
Intr-o epoca a inflatiei informatiei tautologice si a culturii tehnic arhivate, epoca situata inca sub semnul ready-made-ului, RO ARCHIVE urmareste abordarea arhivei in stil Groys, ca masinarie de producere a viitorului, ca ultim criteriu de delimitare a artei de nonarta. Orice inovatie artistica, orice revalorizare, orice nou hotarat sa penetreze campul artei contemporane, poate obtine certificare numai odata cu acceptarea sa in arhiva.

ENGLISH VERSION

under the aegis of the Bucharest National University of Arts, puts forward a dynamic team of curators, artists, and sociologists, some of which are still MA or doctoral students: Raluca Nestor, Raluca Ionescu, Cristiana Radu, Anca Mihulet, Bogdan Bordeianu, Michele Bressan, Bogdan Girbovan, Cosmin Moldovan, Simona Dumitriu.

This initiative has as its primary goal the de/reconstruction of recent Romania and the construction of a cultural archive of texts and images at its core.

RO_ARCHIVE puts together a proposal centered on the model of the Postmodern and Post-structuralist archive. The modernist collection of cultural objects preserved as testimony of an identitary past becomes nowadays form of artistic expression, over-encompassing factor, or filter of cultural redundancy. No longer limited by its condition as treasurer of the past, the archive is free to be a part of the mapping of the present and the facilitation of the new.

pRO_ARCHIVE, an initiative financed by the Romanian Ministry of Culture through Promocult programme, is based on a network of international partnerships that ensures the promotion in the E.U. of the results of RO_ARCHIVE, of a selection of projects by established artists as well as national collaborations such as the one established with the association Vector from Iasi. There is also a successful collaboration with the Contemporary Art Gallery of the Brukenthal Museum in Sibiu, venue that hosted the first exhibition RO_ARCHIVE and has also suggested furthering this partnership in the future.

pRO_ARCHIVE is an original and multidisciplinary proposal because it involves a novel method of promotion of young Romanian artists as well as a link between the facilities of new media (the large impact of dissemination and promotion through the Internet and young audience’s responsiveness to audio-video performances) , a consistent curatorial programme and an openness to both traditional and experimental techniques (interactive art, hypermedia, urban cultural practices – DJ-ing, VJ-ing, WebJ-ing, experimental and electronic music).
