[column-group-page][column] Robert Casmirovici - (dis)obeying concrete forces curator: Andrada Rosu May 20 - June 15 Opening: Friday, May 20, 7 pm Make a Point, Sos Morarilor 1   Documenting and mapping the urban areas of Bucharest and its abandoned places were for Robert Casmirovici only the starting point for what would become an uninterrupted exploration of space through photography. 'I wanted to take some distance from the usual documentary photography that became more and more common. That’s how I came to abstraction. These buildings have so much potential, you just have to watch them from the right angle. Moreover, I’m sick [...]

Make a Joi.
[column-group-page][column] Make a Joi.     Make a Point recommences Make a Joi series of events.   This time the concept evolved:     We find correspondence between films and various topics, with the right guest. Specifically, we start with the screening and after we talk to a guest, a professional, who will dissect the subject of the discussion initiated by the film. We're not trying to bring the public's attention to box-office movies, but independent films, quirky, artsy, be they animations, documentaries or any other genre, but food for thought. Make a Joi's concept is geared towards personal development [...]

În această primă fază a proiectului vor fi prezentate exemple de [...]
