Dislocation and Creative Citizenship: Romanian Diasporic Artists in Europe

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter evaluates the role of spatial, historical and ideological dislocations in the creative citizenship performed by Romanian diasporic artists working from the perspective of post-colonial subjectivity. Dan Perjovschi, Mircea Cantor, Mădălina Zaharia and Ileana Pașcalău reclaim public and digital spaces to provide a new regime of visibility and a reflexive, critical and performative re-examination of history, memory and the tension between the individual and the collective.
