Revista-ARTA - #24-25: Hibrizi / Hybrids

Revista ARTA was, between 1954–1993, the most important contemporary art magazine in Romania. It stopped appearing from 1993 to 2010, until it was relaunched as a print magazine, and, since 2014, also available online.
The purpose of the magazine is to map the Romanian contemporary art scene, to document it and offer a critical evaluation of its manifestations, via essays, reviews, interviews and thematic issues. It is published three times a year and proposes critical discussions about artistic and cultural phenomena in Romania, analyzed against the backdrop of the international context.
Publisher is the Romanian Artists’ Union (Uniunea Artiștilor Plastici din România), and the online magazine is supported by the Administration of the National Cultural Fund.
Director: Petru Lucaci
Editor-in-chief: Magda Cârneci

#24-25 (2017) Hibrizi / Hybrids (bilingual Romanian/English)

Hybrids – art from inside the cyclone
As Magda Cârneci writes in the editorial: “Hybridisation refers to a programmatic and fluid transgression of the various aesthetic barriers left standing after modernisms and postmodernisms, to a productive mix between abstract discourse and relational and sociologic gestures in art, in order to invent possible evolution scenarios. It highlights the dominance of super-conceptual artistic actions which chose the amalgam of natural, artifical and virtual to put forth provocative means of questioning the world in socio-political terms. Finally, hybridity announces an ambiguous paradigm change in the contemporary art world, towards an apparent dilution within an immanent philosophy of “art without art”, aiming to rescue the efficiency and relevance of the artistic in a world seen as increasingly relativised and banal, ruled by financial capital. And yet a new, fascinating world.”
