The simultan project is the first edition of an
international experimental video/sound festival, which
will take place between 26-27th of May in Timisoara -
Simultan intended to offer a platform for the new
generations of artists and young cultural producers.
The project intends to implement the idea of
interculturality, to establish a new cultural and
artistic bond on the stage of Romanian art and between
those of different countries. The event hopes to
stimulate the creative ways of the most modern visions
of perceiving and recording the cultural realities in
contemporary art. The event aims to promote the
activity of young artists and of those who belong to
the contemporary movement, through introducing and
presenting the current processes and the most
innovating and revolutionary tendencies.
This event is intended to be annual. This would give
the opportunity of presenting the existing
experimental intentions of audio-visual art, to
identify their status in the current context and to
link them to the new inovating elements.
