East SNAP is a dual event that shows our latest projects from an eastern european perspective. The extensive research exhibition ”Bucharest.Block.Citadel”, co-produced by Domeniul Otetelisanu Foundation and Artoteca, is based on the never before seen or exhibited all together original documents, drawings, photos, plans from the Horia Maicu Archive, now private collection Daniel Balint. Horia Maicu (Harry Goldstein until 1947) is a renowned architect, chief architect of Bucharest in the interval 1958-1969, who left his signature on a number of social realism iconic buildings in Bucharest, now still standing and used, like The National Theatre, Casa Scanteii (now the Free Press House) or Sala Palatului. First time seen, very detailed hand-drawn plans are displayed within the show. Further on, photos and sketches on work journeys of Maicu in Italy and France and series of documenting photos of the enormous building-in-progress sites are revealed in a dynamic panorama. The exhibitional flow continues with the presentation of 6 exceptional video interviews made in 2015 with Romanian (now senior) architects, living and working during the communist Bucharest. The east european feature of this SPECIAL NAG event will be completed by the presentation of our comic book fanzine made by artists from Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic and Romania. Grand Eastern European Libertinism residency that lead to this fanzine addressed the “libertine” concept proposed by curator Octav Avramescu. It proposed participants to turn into comics and posters ideas that are based on libertinism, understood as a social form of creativity bordering the limits of acceptability in visual storytelling, creating networks of ”clandestine” distribution, constructing a biased public image of the author, influenced by the legacy of communist censorship and newer, contemporary forms, etc. For all those that would want to see comics serve a moral, social and political status quo, it should be said that authors resisting this censorship, through their “libertine” works censor them in turn, and one way or another persist in expressing their radicalized individuality, in collective forms of publication.
