Fragments of Bucharest & 2021

This year had everything, good memories, challenges, lessons, new variants, depending on your frame of mind. I’m grateful that after a long time, I was able to travel to Vienna, go on a journey in Tuscany, attend a concert in Berlin, to enjoy a meal at a restaurant in Bologna, meet friends in Madrid or visit a museum in Bucharest.

Spending some time in 2021 in dear Bucharest was wonderful, a city that has changed since I was living there, as is only natural. Many (more) reasons to visit Romania, besides family and friends, are to swim in the Black Sea, the Carpathian mountains, or events as the Romanian Design week and the G.Enescu Music Festival.

Art Walk Berlin

One thing I do really well is exaggerate. The previous weekend diary included many galleries, museums, a lot of coffee stops and masks thanks to a duo: 9th edition of Berlin Art Week and Galleries Weekend. This if we don’t count also the 11th Berlin Biennale for contemporary art, and all lighted up together by the Festival of Lights. I like Septembers.

International Museums Day

An event that started in Paris is now almost everywhere in the world. Every year, around the 18th of May is celebrated the International Museums day. Galleries and more other cultural places join every year the “Museum night”. The way we perceive the art perhaps is the way we perceive life. Our opinion about the same gallery exhibition can be similar or extremely different, even by us in different periods of our life.
