Various publications, local tram, museum board
Locations: Garrison Command, public space (intervention on a tram in circulation), Timisoara National Museum of Art - employees' entrance on Mercy Street (Strada Mercy).
Insert is an in-process infiltration into the Romanian printed media, art and culture magazines or magazines that still specialise in the visual arts (Revista 22, Observator cultural, IDEA, Etaj, Propagarta, Orizont, Capital cultural) distributed in Bucharest, Iasi, Timișoara, Sibiu. The inclusion of the Insert in the exhibition represents a support for the printed press and a communication portal for the group exhibition. The Inserts will be published before and during the exhibition.
The second part of the project also takes place in the public domain. This is a tram illustrated by Dan Perjovschi starting from topics such as revolution, freedom, multiculturalism, community, that will run in Timișoara during 2023, on tramlines 1, 2 and 6, linking important points of the city, including the exhibition spaces in Libertății Square and Traian Square.
The third part is a noticeboard on a street near the National Art Museum Timișoara -by the employees’ entrance on Mercy Street - which references the presence of the artist in unconventional spaces within the museum.
Dan Perjovschi draws critically, with humour, directly on the walls of art institutions around the world, commenting politically, socially and culturally on the daily life of global society. His black and white drawings are visual editorials.
Perjovschi has had solo exhibitions at Tate Modern London, MoMA New York, Macro Rome, Moderna Museet Stockholm, Reykjavik Art Museum, Vannabbe Eindhoven, Ludwig Cologne, Nasher Duke University or Kiasma Helsinki and group exhibitions at Centre Pompidou Paris, Tate Liverpool, Castello di Rivoli Torino, MoMA San Francisco, MUAC Mexico, MAM Warsaw, MCBA Lausanne and MOT Tokyo.
He has participated in Documenta 15 and the art biennials Istanbul, Venice, Sao Paulo, Moscow, Sydney, Lyon, Dublin, Iasi, Timisoara and Jakarta.
He received the George Maciunas Award in 2004, the ECF Princess Margriet Award, Amsterdam 2012 (with Lia Perjovschi) and the Rosa Schapire Kunsthalle Hamburg Award in 2016.
Perjovschi is the laureate of the Gheorghe Ursu Human Rights Foundation 1999 and of the Civil Society Gala CERE Participation 2016.
Since 2010 he has been working in Sibiu on the public art project Horizontal Journal.
