[Nettime-ro] Moldavian Invasion {AT} EastArea. untill 16 of October, 2005

sorrrrry guys, for empty mesage.....

 From: "East Area" <info {AT} eastarea.nl>

 East Area presents: INVASION - a project by Lucia Macari and Stefan Rusu.
 Opening: saturday, october 1st,17:00-20:00

 2 artists from Moldavia look at the history and present of their home
 country as a history of military and cultural invasions, by making an
 artistic invasion in EastArea- this time a Moldavian-Mongolian one.
 Lucia Macari has edited a Moldavian-Mongolian phrase book, inspired by
 the conversation guides used by Russian soldiers during the World War II. 
 In 1941 a Russian-German conversation book was published in the
 SU, to be distributed among the soldiers along with their army boots;  in 1943, a similar 
Russian-Moldavian phrasebook was published, that
 was supposed to help the Soviet liberation army forces to communicate
 with local population.

 While these historic documents served as a proof of Russia s
aggressive military policy, Lucia Macari s contemporary 
 guidebook is rather meant to facilitate a successful artistic
 invasion. It provides an artist with vocabulary and communication
 tools sufficient for taking part in an international art show. For
 this guidebook two of non-existing languages of the Soviet empire, that
 both suffered greatly under Russian linguistic invasion, were used.
 This project was at first presented at the international camp of
 visual art on the archaeological site Shehr al Djedid, a former
 settlement located at the western frontier of the Golden Horde, and
 later in the frame of Invasia project (2002, curator- Stefan Rusu) in Republiv of Moldova.
At the opening, SARS Opera by Stefan Rusu a short humoristic video
 about deep-going cultural connections between Moldavia and Mongolia
 made at the time of SARS epidemic in Asia- will be screened.
