Die Ausstellungen in unseren Projekträumen sind Teil des internationalen Austauschprojekts zwischen Centrul de Interes in Cluj-Napoca, Rumänien, und der Kolonie Wedding.

The exhibitions in our project spaces are part of the international exchange project between Centrul de Interes in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, and Kolonie Wedding.

Centrul de Interes ist sowohl ein Ort für zeitgenössische Kunst als auch ein Verbund, eine Gemeinschaft von Künstler:innen, Galerien, Projekträumen. Das Projekt wurde 2017 ins Leben gerufen, indem sich bereits bestehende Kunstinitiativen und Künstler:innen in Cluj-Napoca zusammenschlossen und in ein altes Fabrikgebäude zogen, das nun 5 Galerien, 4 Projekträume, 3 Räume für künstlerische Residenzen und 24 Werkstätten auf 2800 Quadratmetern und vier Etagen beherbergt. Centrul de Interes ist interdisziplinär und international ausgerichtet, während es gleichzeitig die zeitgenössische Kunstszene in Cluj-Napoca und in ganz Rumänien stärkt.

Centrul de Interes is both a place for contemporary art and a network, a community of artists, galleries and project spaces. The project was launched in 2017 by bringing together existing art initiatives and artists in Cluj-Napoca and moving into an old factory building that now houses 5 galleries, 4 project spaces, 3 spaces for artist’s residencies and 24 workshops on 2800 square metres and 4 floors. Centrul de Interes is interdisciplinary and international in scope, while strengthening the contemporary art scene in Cluj-Napoca and throughout Romania.

FLANEUR, Andrei Budescu+Ovidiu LeuceInstallation – Photo & Collage by Andrei Budescu / Ovidiu Leuce

Opening: October 15, 7 pm

Exhibition: October 16-31, 2021, Saturdays 2-6 pm and per appointment


For the perfect flâneur, for the passionate spectator, it is an immense joy to set up house in the heart of the multitude, amid the ebb and flow of movement, in the midst of the fugitive and the infinite.  (Charles Baudelaire,“The Painter of Modern Life”, published in Le Figaro, 1863)


In the space of the gallery the public can discover an unstable scenery assembled by the two artists united in their work by the attention they pay to landscape and to the texture produced by the signs of a territory.

This exhibition is part of the international exchange project between Centrul de Interes in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, and Kolonie Wedding, Berlin.
