How does our life looks every day? How do you think it would look like if, at some point, we all got some users manuals for? Maybe we would treat our life with more delicacy? Maybe we could managed not to spoil, from time to time, happy moments? Or maybe, superficials and bohemians, we would take throw the manual away and go on, without strings and boundaries? A lot of questions, indeed. Maybe we could find some answers at Art Encounters 2017, Timișoara, Romania. Some artistic ones. (Photo up: Art Encounters, Fontaine de mousse, Michel Blazy)

Entitled Life a User’s Manual, the central exhibition curated by Ami Barak and Diana Marincu, will survey and compile fragments from everyday life, as seen in both current artistic practices and historical art projects from the 1960s onwards. Like in Georges Perec’s novel, La vie mode d’emploi, the exhibition will present characters, situations and contexts – stories that span not only over a day, but also a lifetime. As the fluxus artist Robert Filliou said, “art is what makes life more interesting than art”.
Press photographies capturing moments for recent history, artistic encounters with our daily places, paintings that explore our fears and memories, installations that capture, in an very artistic way, social hierarchies.
What do I want to see at Art Encounters 2017? István Csákány, Mircea Suciu, Leea Razovsky, Olivia Mihălțianu, Dan Perjovschi art works. And so so many others.
