During the course of the exhibition, in February 2023, an event will be held to launch a monograph dedicated to Paul Neagu, which represents the first large-scale publication to examine all the phases of his artistic itinerary. Based on archival research and an extensive investigation of the available documentary sources, the monograph covers multiple facets of Neagu’s practice, drawing attention to contemporary perspectives on this singular artistic and cultural trajectory, while at the same time deepening its historical contextualization. The monograph is edited by Magda Radu and Georg Schöllhammer, along with assistant editor Diana Ursan. It was commissioned by The Paul Neagu Estate (UK) and is published by JRP|Editions, with essays by Ivana Bago, David Crowley, Tom Holert, André Lepecki, Friedemann Malsch, Anca Oroveanu, Ileana Pintilie, Magda Radu, Yehuda Emmanuel Safran, Kristine Stiles, and Diana Ursan.
This event is part of the ‘Timișoara 2023 Cultural Programme – European Capital of Culture’ and is financed by the Council of Timiș County.
