Its theme encompasses the motto of the Romanian Presidency exhibitions – “Architecture is inhabited sculpture” the words of the famous Romanian artist, Constantin Brâncuşi. The exhibition revolves around the idea that construction and communication are closely related human values.
“The artists whose works are present in the exhibition are brought together by this very fertile concept of CONSTRUCTION / COMMUNICATION – remembering that space and time only have meaning if we define them with our own lives”, said the Minister of Culture and National Identity.
