What is PRR?
PAVILION RESOURCES ROOM, if we report it to the definition of the archive, it's a non-archive, with no historical and objective references.
Created by Razvan Ion and Eugen Radescu (founders of Bucharest Biennale, Pavilion - center for contemporary art & culture, and Pavilion - journal for politics & culture) PRR grows organically helped by the additions and by the research travels.
The concept of traveling PRR is not to move out the resources but to making PRR extractions doubling part of the PRR and moving for ever in the new spaces and that will help to be a start for a new PRR which grow based on local needs and context.
PRR is equally an inspirational zone as an action one, whitch contains a research and documentation archives of actions/activities and curatorial files whitch generated PAVILION magazine, BUCHAREST BIENNALE and the centre for art and contemporary culture PAVLION UNICREDIT.â
The content of the room (as a permanent project with in the centre space, and also as an itinerary project) it contains approximately 1000 instruments of research whitch come from different fields of theory.ââ
