Celia Ghyka / Călin Dan, About The “Collective Authorship” Project And Film.

In 2019, the Collective Authorship returns with a film, synthesizing the main directions of the project and reuniting the interviews taken from 2017 onwards. Gathering representatives of the most diverse professions (architects, engineers, masons, plasterers, doctors, visual artists), the Collective Authroship (2019, 52 min) film debaates the way in which Romanian society metabolized this political, ideological, architectural excess: the House of the People.

The debate is followed by the premiere of the installation-film which takes place November 22, 2019, at Switch Lab, Universul Palace, 4th Floor.
