ALERT studio
Mircea Vulcanescu 2-4


ALERT studio is an independent project initiated by Raluca Demetrescu, Alina Buga and Catalin Burcea in order to create a platform of research and promotion of contemporary artistic production. Taking on the function of a laboratory space, Studio Alert proposes a meeting between artists, ideas, directions and speeches from different areas of conceptual and cultural spaces. Critical thinking and interrogation are important and valued as research methods in the contemporary cultural and artistic field. ALERT studio stands as a gallery project, connecting three areas of artistic exploration - PINK | RED | WHITE - into one space. But these coordinates do not mean indexing, labeling and restriction. They may intersect, combine in new shades, and may always communicate and trigger debates.

On canvas. Made of linen. #beautifulart For a healthier lifestyle, consume oil on canvas with moderation! #thankyouforbuying (Mihai Zgondoiu) People of the XXI century do not live by the rules, they are not willing to give something up for the sake of living a fair and balanced life. Our social life today lacks moral concerns: our actions are no longer validated by "what must" and this is how we became "the society of generalized permissiveness" (Gilles Lipovetscky). It would rather be called the era of the aesthetic minimalism. Rigor does not disappear completely, but it stops being preponderant. A first step in the massification of production is the transformation of things into products, into merchandise. Things no longer have their own identity and they become one of the thousand identical copies. Standardization of things becomes the standardization of people. The transformation of things into goods becomes the transformation of people into consumers. This metamorphosis leads to a superficial impression of wellbeing. If the problem of social equity was formulated in terms of redistribution of valuable non mass produced items, today’s technology manages to satisfy the consumer’s needs by mass producing the goods; but what exactly makes possible the transformation of goods into products and of people into consumers? The answer is the indefinite replication of goods and the amplitude it takes because of technology. What does the technological production stand for? It mainly stands for creating such expensive and complex products that only an impressive mass would pay for them. With "Thank you for buying!", Mihai Zgondoiu involves in the art market not to sell, but to question/debate the situation of art fairs today, from inside an art fair, in a constructive manner, by asking from an economical perspective how the market is regulated and by which mechanisms they set their rules: capitalist, aesthetic or cultural.
