For one week the halls of the short distance railway station turned into art spaces and a meeting spot for young artists working in Berlin and Cluj. Until the 30th of October the railway station had been the meeting point of artist from Cluj-Napoca and Berlin.
The project was initiated by Ștefan Ioan Botiș and Minor Alexander and it was organized in collaboration with AiciAcolo Pop Up Gallery, a gallery that organizes events at places that are not used by the citizens any more in order to raise awareness. Ștefan Ioan Botiș lived in Berlin, then moved back to Cluj-Napoca. “There are many artists from Cluj working in Berlin, but no artist from Berlin move to Cluj-Napoca. Therefore, the aim of the project is to connect these communities in Cluj-Napoca. “
The event is part of Com’On Cluj-Napoca, a participative budgeting project for youth initiatives.
CFR, the Romanian National Railways is the main partner of the project, generously offering the use of their space. The project is supported by the City Hall and Local Council in Cluj-Napoca, as part of the candidacy of the city for the title of European Capital of Culture 2021.
