Alex Mirutziu

Mirutziu adheres to the curator’s concept in the Art Encounters Biennial 2015, with works that point out the duty to clarify our context. As artist in residence in Timișoara, he continues his research entitled Revenge of Architecture or When I Build I’m Right – which will be publicly presented during Art Encounters.
