DESIGN of DISSENT exhibition is being held outdoors in the public square in Timișoara, Romania.
Part of the MAD(e) in Romania project, Design of Dissent is presented alongside a series of exhibitions showcasing artworks by reference names in Romanian art. The artists invited identified with the proposed concept and with the ethically, politically and socially committed artistic approach – “Art as political praxis”.
Posters were printed on nylon material to withstand the elements.
MAD(E) in Romania is a manifesto-project with a declared political and social dimension built around the energy of protests and protesting. It brings together 28 socio-politically engaged artists, illustrators and poster activists recognized for their pervasive critical discourse, alongside 8 film directors and their critically engaged productions and 16 researchers in visual arts and related disciplines.
