Exhibition „Common borders“ is reali
zed in the frames of international annual project Week of contemporary art, that has been implemented since 1995 and is one of the most important events, organized by Art Today Association. It shows projects, dealing with topical theme, presenting artists who work in the sphere of contemporary art.
The forthcoming 12th edition of the Week aims at presenting artworks of contemporary art from 2 Balkan countries (Bulgaria and Romania) in a moment when they strive to overcome many inner and outer borders, accomplishing a common pursuit - becoming members of EU.
The partner organization from Romanian side is Vector Association in Iasi, that as Art Today Association is realizing its activity in the premises of an old Turkish bath. This circumstance becomes reason for analogies. The space between the two baths is geography and architecture. It defines the trajectories of the personal and international relations, where the link is the water border, the channel, the river, the pure water and drainage. This water that connects and separates each other. The wide water, which brings Europe, though against the stream, will bring us to it. The starting point of the bath architecture is the entrance hall, place for coming in and out, for welcoming and seeing off. Who is guest and who is host in the forthcoming adhesion is a question of identification, uncover, examining and clearing.
