bucharest-buchawork interviews interviews

We conducted a series of interviews with active individuals from the Romanian cultural scene as well as with people with an interest in Romania and insights on its processes.

Among the questions asked were: • What strategies, if any, can The West learn from Romania? • Will the "Newest Europe" provide us with the answers to global capitalism (in the shade of monster billboards)?
(for more questions see our information->questions section).
