The workshop has been conceived as an education platform, based on new practices and produced in
collaboration with institutions of higher education in visual arts from Chisinau, Oradea, Bucharest
and Iasi. The starting point of the workshop was represented by Urmuz, Daniil Harms and Henri
Michaux texts, appeared in the interwar period, that now have been used to encourage the creation
of new works process, which intercalated performing arts, contemporary dance and performance
At the workshop were invited students, artists and teachers from institutions of higher education in the
visual arts from Moldova and Romania.

Invited tutors from Les Ateliers du Vent (France), Norway and Romania have coordinated theoretical
and practical sections, as well the final presentation of the workshop results.
Aesthetic position of artists in the interwar period, which starts from the myth of art / artist
independence by processes that occur in society, has been questioned in the new social and political
conditions on the reuse and re-evaluation of their prose and poetry.
Works made ​by participants suggest a reinterpretation of the role of artist in today's society in terms of
contemporary practices and art theory.
