*Despite the fact that all artists in the exhibition are somehow connected to Romania, the “romanian-ness” of this exhibition is almost non existent and it was never intended to do anything more than to underline this.

**In the preparatory stages of this exhibition we have used the text “PRE” by Ion Dumitrescu (published in Black Hyperbox, Punch Ed, 2017) as a working tool and a basis of dialogue.
