Alexandra Titu is an art critic, a curator and an essay writer. Her vast publicist and curatorial activity reflects her interests in the relations between traditional and alternative art, between local elements and Western imports or between cultural manifestations and the social and political context engendering them. Starting with 1970, she has published studies, essays, articles and fine arts chronicles in many artistic and cultural journals. She coordinates the comprehensive catalogue “Experiment in Romanian Art after 1960”, at Soros Center for Contemporary Art, Bucharest, 1997, where she portrays Experimentalism as the most revealing form of artistic manifestation of our age. At present, she teaches at the Faculty of Arts of the Western University, Timişoara, and at the Faculty of Letters, Bucharest University.
Cristiana Radu graduated a Master in Visual Arts from the National University of Arts of Bucharest, in 2006. Since 2005, she has been actively involved in publishing, constantly collaborating with periodicals from the fields of culture and arts. Between 2007 and 2010, she was an editor of the arts section of the magazine Time Out Bucharest. Starting with 2006, she has participated in several important cultural projects, both at a national and international level. So far, as an illustrator, she has illustrated several books, including seven children picture-books.
The project is coordinated by Aurora Király, based on a concept developed together with Iosif Király.
