Through his editorial and artistic activity, Dan Perjovschi has played a major role in the development of the Romanian civil society. Inspired by current news stories, his minimalistic drawings are keen observations on political, social and cultural events.

His art both occupies the walls and windows of art institutions and public spaces, and is also disseminated through social media, his humurous, critical, but also empathetic point of view offering people a visual means to reflect upon the inequalities in their society.

About the speaker

Perjovschi’s work has been exhibited at MoMA in New York, Tate Modern in London, Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and the Venice Biennial, amongst many others. Together with his life partner, Lia Perjovschi, he was awarded the 2013 Princess Margriet Award.

”As an artist you have both a freedom and a responsibility. You increase your freedom by knowing things and by sharing this knowledge.”
