The 3rd issue of ”Vector – art and culture in context” proposes, in the opening, a new series of  presentations of art institutions activating in South East Europe and Middle East, the conception of a Western institutional initiative which is questioning the knowledge exchange between contexts and the first project realized in Iasi in the frame of Backyard Residencies program. The second contribution of Vector magazine to the documenta 12 magazine editorial project is answering the question “What is Bare Life (Subjectification)?”, both by a theoretical text about the resistance through small corruption in communist Romania and by a series of artistic projects proposed by invited artists and curators, talking about the photographic practice as simultaneously integrated and opposed to the practices of identity administration, about life taken on one’s own as an artistic project, about hiding in plain sight the politically simplified aggression and about the creative reaction to the neoliberal scenarios. The section assigned to the recent art theory and criticism approaches the “institutional critique” issue in a range of case studies about the situation of the production and inter-mediation of contemporary art in Bulgaria, Ukraine and Romania. Other sections discuss situations of alternative everyday lifestyles, of commitments in tactical media or certain arguments about the organization of a film festival.
