I’m So Angry (I Made A Sign) Pop-up Museum in Bucharest
+ special five-day performance: Dutch-Romanian artist recreates her father’s strike of silence from 1990.

On June 8th, the I’m So Angry (I Made a Sign) Pop-up Museum, an itinerant exhibition with personal stories from those who took part in revolutions and revolts in Europe, will open in Bucharest. Especially for the exhibit, the Romanian-Dutch artist Ioana Tudor will perform her Greva Tăcerii (Silent protest): for five days, she will go on a strike of silence in the busy city center of Bucharest. Just like her father did in 1990.

Happiest day
I’m So Angry tells the personal stories of those who took part in the infamous revolts and revolutions that shaped European history. You’ll read the story of Constantin Jinga, who was shot during the Romanian Revolution, but still calls that day the happiest of his life. Or the story of the Polish Mirka Chojecki-Nukowska, who would never call herself a hero, but was forced to flee because of her resistance. The museum shows how people set aside their fears and took action in extraordinary circumstances and raises the question: what would you do in their situation? Or what are you currently doing about your situation or that of your compatriots? Visitors are called upon to make their own protest sign and to show it to the world in an interactive video booth.

Symbolically following in her father’s footsteps
The museum will open on June 8th, in Green Hours in Bucharest. Especially for the occasion, the Romanian-Dutch artist Ioana Tudor will give a five-day performance. Her father, Dumitru Tudor, held a strike of silence in June 1990, to protest the Iliescu-government. He called attention to thirteen injustices, among them the violence against protestors. He wore these thirteen bullet points on a large piece of paper around his neck. As a result of the protest, he was arrested and spent four months in prison. “The 'invisibility' of that one man who didn’t use his voice is symbolic of the powerlessness of a single man taking on a totalitarian state”, says Ioana Tudor. After her father’s protest, the Tudor family was forced to flee the country. They ended up in The Netherlands.

During the special opening night on June 8th of the I’m So Angry Museum in Green Hours, Ioana Tudor and her father will ask the audience: what injustice needs to be protested nowadays? Based on these interactions, Ioana Tudor will write down thirteen bullet points of her own and hang them from her neck. Starting June 9th, she will be silent for five days on Plața Victoriei (Victory Square) in front of the government building. The strike will end symbolically on June 13th, when it will have been exactly 27 years ago mineworkers, acting as mercenaries for the authorities, violently beat down the protests against the then-government. More than a hundred people were killed in the process, over a thousand were arrested.

When? Special opening night: June 8th, 20h. Free entrance!
Where? Green Hours (Calea Victoriei 120, București)

I’m So Angry (I Made a Sign) Pop-up Museum in Bucuresti
+ 5 zile de performanța speciala:
Artista olandeza de origine romana reediteaza protestul tatalui ei "Greva Tăcerii" din 1990

In data de 8 iunie se va deschide in Bucuresti Muzeul Pop-up I’m So Angry (I Made a Sign), o expozitie itineranta cu povestea personala a participantilor la revolutii si revolte in Europa. Special pentru aceasta expozitie, artista romana-olandeza Ioana Tudor va performa in Greva Tăcerii : timp de 5 zile, Ioana va sta in centrul aglomerat al Bucurestiului in greva tacerii. La fel cum a facut tatal ei in 1990.

Cea mai fericita zi
Muzeul Pop-up I’m So Angry (I Made a Sign) prezinta relatarile/istoriile personale ale celor care au participat la cunoscutele revolte si revolutii care au format istoria Europei. Aici vei citi povestea lui Constantin Jinga, care a fost impuscat in timpul Revolutiei Romane, dar el numeste ziua aceea ca cea mai fericita zi din viata lui. Sau povestea polonezei Mirka Chojecki-Nukowska, care in niciun caz nu se considera eroina, dar care a trebuit sa fuga din tara ca urmare a activitatii ei de rezistenta. Muzeul arata cum oamenii in circumstante speciale isi lasa frica deoparte si iau atitudine, si astfel se ridica intrebarea: ce-ai face tu in situatia lor? Sau ce faci tu acum pentru situatia ta sau cea a compatriotilor tai? Vizitatorii sunt chemati sa-si faca propria pancarta de protest si sa o arate lumii cu ajutorul unei cabine-video interactive [video-booth].

In mod simbolic pe urmele tatalui ei
Deschiderea muzeului are loc la 8 iunie la Green Hours in Bucuresti. Special pentru aceasta ocazie, artista olandeza de origine romana Ioana Tudor va da o reprezentatie timp de 5 zile. Tatal ei, Dumitru Tudor, a tinut in iunie 1990 greva tăcerii in semn de protest fata de regimul Iliescu. El cerea public raspuns la treisprezece puncte de nedreptate, printre altele violenta folosita impotriva demonstrantilor. Aceste 13 puncte le-a scris pe o bucata mare de hartie (ozalid) pe care si-a atarnat-o de gat. Urmare acestui protest el a fost arestat si detinut patru luni in inchisoare. “Invisibilitatea’ unui om care nu si-a folosit vocea, este simbolica pentru neputinta unui singur om impotriva unui stat totalitar, spune Ioana Tudor. Dupa protestul tatalui ei, familia Tudor a fost nevoita sa fuga din tara. In cele din urma s-au stabilit in Olanda.

In timpul deschiderii speciale din seara zilei de 8 iunie a Muzeului I’m So Angry (I Made a Sign) la Green Hours, Ioana Tudor si tatal ei vor intreba publicul: impotriva carei nedreptati trebuie protestat in ziua de azi? In functie de raspunsurile primite, Ioana Tudor va intocmi in mod asemanator o lista cu treisprezece puncte, si o va atarna de gatul ei. Incepand cu 9 iunie va sta cinci zile in tăcere in Piața Victoriei ('Overwinningsplein/ Victory Square') in fata sediului Guvernului. Greva va inceta in mod simbolic in ziua de 13 iunie, cand exact cu 27 de ani in urma minerii, actionand ca mercenari ai autoritatilor, au inabusit violent protestele impotriva guvernarii de-atunci. Mai multi oameni au fost omorati, si peste o mie au fost arestati atunci.

Proiectul Cortina de Fier [Iron Curtain Project]
Muzeul Pop-up I’m So Angry (I Made a Sign) face parte din Proiectul Cortina de Fier, un proiect jurnalistic multimedia despre Europa cu relatari/istorii online si evenimente ‘offline’, organizat in colaborare cu parteneri locali. Proiectul Cortina de Fier investigheaza ce-a ramas din optimismul perioadei de dupa caderea comunismului/ zidului din Berlin. Intamplarile/istoriile/ personale ale Europeanului ‘obisnuit’ sunt considerate aici punctul de plecare. Acesta este o initiativa a colectivului olandez de jurnalisti Bureau Boven si a editurii Autres Directions si este realizat cu sprijinul Fondului European pentru Cetateni.
