Vector> activities, from exhibitional and educational programmes to research and publishing activities, are analyzing the relationships between the art and visual culture practices and the socio-political context. The cultural actions of Vector> Association are questioning the status of artist and art institutions in a post-communist society which is introducing aggressively the rules of a new socio-political and economical order and also are reflecting how art can function in a context without having a cultural infrastructure. As a consequence of questioning and reflecting, Vector> is supporting those artistic practices related to the social re-articulation, political awareness and economical re-structuration that require a reflexive and critical analysis which could offer the coordinates of an attitudinal and behavioral re-orientation from the perspective of the cultural action.
The most important current projects of Vector are:
- Periferic – International Biennial for Contemporary Art (platform for promotion, production and cultural exchange in the contemporary art field)
- Vector - art and culture in context – Publication (theoretical, critical and informal platform)
- Studio for art practices and debates (educational platform for research, production and mediation run in partnership with the “George Enescu” Arts University of Iasi www.arteiasi.ro/ita)
