Summary/Abstract: In this extraordinary new interview, Balkanalysis.com Director Chris Deliso documents the experience and ideas of two visionary young Romanians working hard to develop and promote contemporary art in their country. Chris spoke recently with the pair, Mihai Suta and Dan Vuletici at the arty Scârţ loc lejer bar in their city of Timisoara to learn more about their project for proliferating contemporary art more widely. The project, taking place in one of Romania’s traditional cultural capitals, is meant to help the artists. Yet it also seeks to challenge the accepted understanding of art in Romania, the perception of its audience make-up, and the power structures that control its distribution and exhibition- all with a little help from the social Web and a spirit of volunteerism. Mihai Suta studied economics and political science at Timisoara University. He then worked for several years as a business developer for private investors in Romania, Hungary and Austria, and did the same for several multinationals in the last two years- while also devoting plenty of time in 2012 to the new art project. Dan Vuletici finished high school and university of fine arts, worked at various local agencies as a web/print designer then moved to London to build social websites for major corporations such as BBC Channel 4, Sony, Orange and more. Between these jobs, he also developed his painting skills, which he has turned into a profession as an artist.
