To sum up Alicia Jeannin’s two-month residency in Bucharest and her open lab at Goodbuy Gallery, we are delighted to invite you to an exhibition through which different political speeches from the Romanian socio-political landscape from the last years are reactivated. Alicia Jeannin’s practice investigates the performative dimension of political speeches by producing specific spaces to make, create and share new experiences of listening, watching, and speaking. Excerpts from interviews that she carried out with local socio-political practitioners are unveiled, amongst other audio-visual elements that have the ability to place the public in a participatory dimension.

About Alicia

What can people do when they speak?  Performativity is not only to be found in the quality of the language itself, but in the quality of the exposure it will benefit from. For a speech to take place, all sorts of energies must be mobilized. By putting the audience in an active posture, I want to highlight the fact that speaking up is an engagement, however one does it. — Alicia Jeannin
