Joint project brings together Bucharest, Warsaw, Berlin

The Knot is an itinerant stage for artistic productions and presentations which will be set in various public areas of Berlin, Warsaw and Bucharest, from the end of April to the end of October 2010. The interdisciplinary project “The Knot – linking the existing with the imaginary” will make its debut in Berlin’s public space, where it will remain between April 28 and May 30, 2010. Its pre-launch occurred yesterday, at Kulturforum, which, since its conception, in the ‘70s, has acted as a contested ground for cultural representation and negotiations of urban development. The proper launch will take place on April 29, starting 13:00. The Knot is an itinerant stage which will be set, in the days to come, in other public areas of Berlin – from May 2 to May 16, it will find its place at Marianneplatz, in the densely populated area of Kreuzberg and will have, as its final stop in Berlin, the former Tempelhof airport, before being moved to Warsaw. The Knot will reach Bucharest in October 2010. The project was initiated by an interdisciplinary group made of curators and artists Markus Bader (Raumlabor Berlin), Oliver Baurhenn (DISK/CTM, Berlin), Jakub Szreder (freelance curator, Warsaw) and Raluca Voinea (E-cart.ro, Bucharest) and was inspired by an architectonic concept of the Raumlabor Berlin architecture office. The Knot may be defined as a new space for experimenting different ways of interaction and cooperation, for the exchange of theoretical and practical knowledge and for the testing of varied ways of becoming involved in the public sphere. Romanian participants will include Vasile Ernu, Ovidiu Tichindeleanu, H-arta (RO), Stefan Tiron, Livia Mihaltianu, Ilia Gheorghe, Alina Popa, Mihaela Kavdanska, Dilmana Iordanova, Peter Szabo and Claudiu Cobilanschi, each representing an integrated field: literature, photography, visual arts, poetry.
