The Knowledge Museum
Lia Perjovschi


Lia Perjovschi will discuss a few of her previous projects in context, the evolution of her practice and the changes it underwent as a result of various personal, social and political events, and how she ultimately reached the Knowledge Museum. The Knowledge Museum is a project in which Lia recycles all her other artistic projects including elements of her Contemporary Art Archive (CAA), the first archive of its kind in Romania. Like an architect, she presents a model - on a table, on the walls, or in a space - using diagrams from her interdisciplinary research. This research comes from books, reviews, the internet, and objects mainly in museum stores from around the globe (collected from 1999 until today and used for educational purposes). The Knowledge Museum comprises 7 departments: Earth, Body, Art, Culture, Knowledge, Science, and Universe. It is not 'The Museum', but rather a basic starting point. Knowledge is Surviving (doing the best you can out of what you have).

Lia Perjovschis presentation is coming along with the exhibition DRAWING PROTEST of her husband Dan Perjovschi at Shedhalle Zürich opening at May 8th organized by Olga Stefan.
