This year, a café-type space dedicated to The Night of Museums will be open at the Maps and Old Books Museums in Bucharest, between May 15 and May 20. Besides having a cup of coffee there, the public can also find information about all events of the Museums Night.
A new Bucharest museum will be open at Nod Makerspace. Museum3017 is the exhibition that will inaugurate the space and will offer a look on Bucharest of the year 3017. The curatorial concept belongs to Simina Badica: “The fictional script is placed in 3017 when a mysterious “time capsule” is found containing the anthropological research done on living in Bucharest: photos, interviews with Bucharest people, objects, dates, plans. The curators of 3017 discover (and make public in this exhibition) not only the results of the research, but also some mysterious concepts that they are trying to explore: LIVING, HOME, MUSEUM. ”
