Terapie prin expunere: un muzeu dispersat


Joi 12 mai, 2011, 19.00

Ramasitele regimului totalitar sunt prezente atat in straturile profunde ale constiintei colective cat si in mostenirea arhitecturala. Subiectul comunismului apare alienat din cand in cand in discursul public fara a beneficia de o platforma de dezbatere adecvata, si astfel riscand sa ramana o fantoma recurenta. Atat generatiile care au l-au trait cat si cele care i-au urmat se misca intr-un spatiu contemporan neinteles, incercand sa reconstruiasca cu greu o identitate confuza. In acest context apare necesitatea unui muzeu critic care sa decodifice si sa reintegreze aceste ramasite in societate. Configurarea sa spatiala ar urmari revalorificarea locurilor traumatizate din centrul Bucurestiului, permitand vizitatorilor sa le descopere si sa le aloce semnificatii noi la nivelul orasului prezent si viitor.

Ana Dabija s-a nascut in1985 si a absolvit studiile Universitatii de Arhitectura si Urbanism “Ion Mincu”, din Bucuresti.

Exposure therapy: the dispersed museum


Thursday, May 12, 2011, 19.00

The fragments we have left from the totalitarian regime are as present in the deep layers of our collective mind as much as in the infamous architectural heritage. The subject of communism appears from time to time in the public discourse, alienated, nearly becoming a recurrent ghost. The generations that survived those times as the ones that came after, they all move in a contemporary space they fail to understand, looking out for an identity. In this context we need a critical museum to decode and reintegrate these fragments inside the society. The spatial configuration would revaluate locations on the map of Bucharest’s city centre, allowing visitors to discover these spots and relocate new urban symbols inside the present and future city.

Ana Dabija was born in 1985 and has graduated the Univerisity of Architecture and Urbanism “Ion Mincu”, in Bucharest.
