The exhibition Formate curated by Georg
Schollhammer was the first show at 2020 to be part of an official programme.
The wider program Formate gathered together different art spaces in Bucharest
and established a line-up of alternative spaces such as Lia Perjovschi
Contemporary art archive or the 2020 Gallery, as well as the National
Museum of Contemporary Art. The show at 2020 was cross between fresh contemporary
art and street art samples and a presentation by Monika Vykoukal from
Vienna, followed by the live music performance of Werner Moebius.
This was the moment when 2020 was ready
to receive its quta of earbending sounds. Werner pushed the audience into
the nether world of rebounding analog sounds and compressed atmospherics,
so typicall of all his live performances. In the wake of it we felt the
entire building taking a long, sonorous breath of air.
The Formate-Moving Patterns show at 2020 Vienna Days as whole had something
primordial to it - it was the one time when all the diverse Bucharest
creative clusters participated in one big, single, celebration. And the
best thing about it is the follow-up which will be a Bucharest showcase
in Vienna's Kunsthalle later this year with many surprises to come. We
will keep you informed on this future event as it develops.
