Book / Micronarratives and the City. An Annotated Map of Bucharest.

On 23 June 2023 ‘Micronarratives and the City’ was launched at LUCA School of Arts, with a conversation with Alina Cristea (LUCA School of Arts / KU Leuven), Ileana Marin (University of Bucharest / University of Washington), Mira Sanders (KU Leuven – Faculty of Architecture), and Fien Vaneenooghe (LUCA School of Arts), moderated by Liesbeth Decan (LUCA School of Arts).

This publication maps spatial experiences/wanderings through the city of Bucharest. Through photography, text, drawing, film and mixes of different media, the authors explore the mapping of (micro) situations witnessed in the city of Bucharest. The use of image and text forms a common thread across the contributions of the different authors: Alina Cristea draws from her research and practice Bucharest. The City with One Inhabitant. The City-Me, Mira Sanders brings in the act of drawing to represent/explore ways of spatial experiences, and Ileana Marin examines the creative power of wandering in the city of Bucharest through a selection of Romanian literary works.
The publication does not aim to give an exact representation of Bucharest, rather to make side notes of its city-ness and to what extent the authors’ actions reveal (or not) other features of the city, at a given time in this spatial context.
