NOW&HERE = EVERYWHERE is an international Quantum Filmmaking project, participatory mobile phone cinema, celebrating cultural diversity, in which you can collaborate with your mobile phone.
In the project, the participating artists co-create simultaneous video-collage moments by filming in different locations of Planet Earth, choreographically, at the same time.
The aim is to merge art with everyday life, exploring and expanding the notion of contemporary art, inside and beyond the institutions.
We are delighted to announce that MOMENT 9 will be taking place on:

Artists’ Portfolios Presentation
Monday, 28 July, 9.30 pm
Fluvial Station, Cetate Port
The presentation of international and Romanian participants at the first edition of the Mobile Biennale „The Tour of Oltenia in 7 Days” will take place on Monday, 28 July, at 9 pm, in Cetate Port (port on the Danube river, Cetate commune, Dolj county.
With many representatives of different contemporary art institutional areas and of different artistic behaviours, the event is based on information and details. Its aim is to present the coordinates of an artistic microclimate which is to develop and grow during the follwing seven days and where the participants’ reactions (both individual and group attitudes) towards the environment reveal the actions they perform within the space of an artistic work.
The Mobile Biennale is an opera in which mobility and interaction develop in a previously determined space or territory. The coagulant element of the mobile biennale concept consists in its mobility. Perceived as materiality, the mobility gains its shape according to the space-time coordinates that appoints it, while the content is generated by the participants’ interaction and disparity which establish a relationship to the world.
The project is supported by ERSTE Foundation
The main partner is „Craiova – Cultural Capital of Europe in 2021” Association
