Bucharest the Memory - Exploring - Imagining the City



A participatory project about the personal and collective memory of Bucharest

The Memory of the City is the first part in the trilogy Bucharest The Memory | Exploring | Imagining the City. Stating from a process of emotional retrospection, the project aims to establish the landmarks of the subjective geography of Bucharest. Both those living in the city and those working with the city are invited to contribute directly to the retrospection process with photographs (pictures) and/or filmed sequences. The selection process of the items from a number of various personal collections and public documentary funds translates intimate and emotional mapping of Bucharest. The result of this two-month collective and participative effort is an exhibition that will present a double perspective on the city: the “real” city – of the social activity and political tensions, of architectural and urban traumas and of urban bohemia – and the “lived” city – filled with the memories of those inhabiting it.
