ART FRIDAYS: Kunsthalle Bega Tour

ART FRIDAYS: Kunsthalle Bega Tour

The final stop of our tour of some of the most influential visual arts hubs is Timișoara, in Western Romania. Join us for a 180-degree look at Kunsthalle Bega, an innovative concept which blends ways old and new in showcasing visual creativity and which tries to make a meaningful contribution to the social life of the city.

The Kunsthalle is an art space halfway between a museum and an art gallery, the ideal solution, some would say, for a place which takes into consideration traditional values while also retaining the ability to look into the future. A platform of this kind aspires to complement the social, political and aesthetic dimensions of a city with an utopical expansion. The concept was first introduced in Romania by Calina Foundation of Timisoara with the opening, in 2019, of Kunsthalle Bega. The initiative belonged to gallerist Alina Cristescu, curator Liviana Dan and artist Bogdan Rața, while the new space’s first project was the exhibition "Seeing Time", curated by Liviana Dan.

Kunsthalle Bega occupies a generous post-industrial warehouse centrally located in Timisoara – a quite unusual position in Romania’s landscape of abandoned factories – and acts as an alternative space that invites young artists to express themselves through radical aesthetic practices. The gallery projects a self-acknowledged programmatic tension between supporting the socially critical work of the younger generations of artists and, at the same time, working to enhance the social cohesion of the city through visual arts projects. Each year, Kunsthalle Bega awards the BEGA ARTPRIZE for curatorial work.

Our Story

Established in 1969 as the Romanian Library under the British and American Studies don Dan Grigorescu, the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York (RCINY) is one of Romania’s oldest cultural diplomacy vehicles. The transformation from a library to a cultural center and, since 2004, a cultural institute has marked almost five decades of development and periodic reinvention.

RCINY is part of the 18-strong network of similar organizations scattered on four continents that constitute the backbone of Romania’s efforts to promote culture and arts throughout the world.

Endowed with a versatile institutional identity, RCINY is at once a promoter, curator and producer of artistic and cultural events, resource center and learning hub, which act in synergy to showcase the diversity and vibrancy of Romanian artistic, cultural and academic scene and to galvanize the Romanian-American cultural relations at all levels.

The Institute also acts as the principal artistic agency for Romanian artists in the United States and beyond. A networking specialist, RCINY works to establish thriving, ever-expanding partnerships among Romanian and American cultural organizations, public or independent.

I SHALL NOT KEEP SILENCE ANYMORE My beloved stepfather who left this world on May 4 2004, was a survivor of Auschwitz...... Mom and I met him at a literary party, when I was 5 years old. We kids were playing in another room. He came in, stared at me and said that I look exactly like his little sister. I asked him what her name is. Her name was Veronica, he explained. Then I was not aware of the past tense nuance. He lifted me on his shoulder, and I saw something written on his forearm and he was quick to answer the question that I did not ask yet “I am a graduate of Auschwitz”. Suddenly he decided to read to all of us a funny story. And we had such a good time... As years passed, and I learned more about WW2 and Holocaust, the memory of my first meeting with him became heavier. Time, and my desire and fear to know more, have added slab by slab to this burden. I asked him to tell me about it, but his answer was always the same “be happy to not ever live such things and to not know such things. There is so much joy and hope ahead! None of us should squat in that Past”. Somehow I did put pieces together, and already knew that in 1943 he and his family, of eleven souls were deported from Oradea to Auschwitz. He was 17 years old and Veronica was 5 years old. A Kappo told him to say that he is 20 years old. So he was sent to labour camp, and the rest of the family were taken directly to the gas chamber. The chronological path was lacking any details. He had only one photo hanging on the wall, of Veronica as she was just before the deportation. She indeed looked like me. Except that she had dark blue eyes. By then I also understood the nuance between IS and WAS. I became secretly a reader of anything I could get my hands on, about the Holocaust. At the age of 16, I read the book “I was a Doctor at Auschwitz” and after that I had a respiratory blockage and almost died. Mom and Dad (I called him Lackes) made me promise that I will share with them anything I am interested to read. Lackes made me swear that I will never set foot to Auschwitz. I asked him in return to tell me about what he went through. He told me with tears in his eyes that he is a fighter and a survivor, but thinks he cannot survive to go through that again, by putting that in words. Unwillingly and with great pain I kept my promise. But, he did go back to Auschwitz one more time, to fulfil the last wish of a dear friend from the camp. He never told me anything of that experience either. So we went on with our lives. On his 60th birthday, I took a week off from work, to have an extended celebration visit with him. On the third day, while he was preparing breakfast for me (which was always his greatest treat) I heard him humming a song. That had never happened before, because he considered himself an anti-musical talent. I rushed to the kitchen to ask what happened, and he said that he was very happy because it was the first time in years that he did not dream about Auschwitz. HOW CAN ANY OF US EVER RECONCILE WITH THAT PAIN? Lucia Apostol January 27, 2021
