The 4th issue of Vector publication presents, in the opening, a series of events that analyze the reflexive process of inserting new ideas within the context of the revival of political attitudes, such as: the opening of a library in an exhibitional space, a discussion on the situation of European “post-funding” in Ukraine, a poetical navigation in between politically shifted cultures, the configuration of personal opinions regarding the taught systems and the critical activation of the public space of Bucharest. Presented as an artistic intervention, the screenplay of the artist’s biography during socialism is constructed through an effort of commenting and visualizing the recent history of Romania. The “documenta 12 magazine” dossier provides potential answers to the question: “what is to be done (in art education)?” from the theoretical positions of certain “educators” in the local artistic system to the statements of some artists that activate in the international scene. The “critical condition: prejudices” section speaks about experiencing the disclosure of preconceptions in the frame of real situations of art and artists’ receptivity. The collective behavior, the Food not Bombs principles and the activation of squatting are terms related to an alternative lifestyle; the antinomies between copyright, copyleft and creative commons are being analyzed as strategical commitments and, finally, the transience of the electoral structures is examined through a cartographic view of the political situation.
