DAVID SCHWARTZ / KATIA PASCARIU/ IOANA FLOREA/ ALICE MARINESCU – IN BETWEEN
In Between proposes a performance and participatory debate about the origins of persecutions, migrations and refuge in the local and international context. The performance falls within a broader research project of the four artists who come from families affected by forced migration and ethnic persecution. The approach proposes processes understanding displacement as a constant in the history of mankind, by investigating and exposing the personal stories related to migration and refuge, both of the art collective and of the potential audience.
