Magi*k Exhibition – a techno-archaeology of Bucharest, from radio to internet

5 October – 15 November @MNAC Dalles 

Visiting hours: Wednesday-Friday: 4-21 / Saturday-Sunday: 12-20 / Monday-Tuesday: closed

We begin the fall season and Creative Sweden #3 program with magi*k – an interactive exhibition about the history of mass media emergence in Bucharest. We begin with the art deco radio antennas and reach the contemporary era, when the city is plugged in to the global network.

Carol Factory. Bucharest South

The city is moving. Even on the other side of Unirii Boulevard: a new green area in Văcăreşti, galleries, art and design centres appear in old factories, cool bars and restaurants and vanguard entrepreneurship. The isolated and forgotten South breeds today one of the busiest areas.

We explored the southern side of the capital, with two specific themes in mind: new cultural, social and business initiatives and transforming industrial spaces. As a result, in Carol Factory there were three events on October 21st:

Nordic Film Night @ Carol Factory

  • Str. Dr. Constantin Istrati no. 1, Bucharest (opposite of Bus station Filaret, next to Park Carol)
  • Saturday, 6 of june, from 9:30 P.M.
  • Gates open at 7 P.M.

The first Saturday of this summer comes full of Norwegian, Swedish and Danish movies – a rare opportunity to enjoy the Scandinavian cinema at Carol Factory (Halele Carol), but also to celebrate the national day of one of the invited friends, Sweden: on June 6th, just after sunset, the lights of the northern cinema arrive in southern Bucharest, in the former factory next to Carol Park, continuing our program of activating the old site.
