Engage was initiated and organised by Josefin Rasmuson, Emma Haugh and Tess Walkovski. The idea of the project was to go with a group of artists to a place where none of them had been before, and during a certain time period investigate forms of navigating and understanding this place. In the evenings there was space to cook and talk and develop ideas for a public event at the end of the project.
Participating artists were:
Tess Walkowski (US)
Emma Haugh (Ireland)
Karen Boesser (Germany)
Gokcen Dilek Acay (Turkey
Josefin Rasmuson (Sweden)
Fifi Smith (Ireland)
Rosella Piccino (Italy)
A collaboration was also made between Rosella Piccino and:
Dan Adriana Christina (Romania)
Alexandre George Dan (Romania)
Engage 2012, Bucharest
2012, 16-25th March, Bucharest, Romania
Engage 2012 - artist led city project:
The artists leave their homes, where reactions and interactions are often familiar and defined. They come together in a foreign city, where they themselves are the others, simultaneously being in the city, as well as apart from it due to their position as foreigners.
