Description 

Oberliht Association aims to grant support to young artists from Moldova by establishing platforms that allow interested artists, curators and cultural workers to initiate and carry out contemporary art projects with young artists’ participation (workshops, exhibitions etc.), thus addressing their needs, but also addressing different issues like public space, community art projects, networking and others, through visual arts but also through other artistic disciplines like literature or architecture.

Following the series of projects titled INTERVENTIONS (2006-2008) Oberliht association launched the KIOSK project in 2009. Embodied in FLAT SPACE – a cultural information point and a platform for public participation, it aims to provide continuity to the previously organized activities and offer an alternative within a cultural sector dominated by institutions inherited from the Communist period. Installed on a tiny segment of municipal ground, squeezed in between cars aggressively taking over the sidewalks, FLAT SPACE plays the role of an active agent of bottom-up civic involvement, understanding cultural engagement as social action capable of producing a critical culture. The activities built around it address, in its immediate surroundings, the urgent question of public space. In a broader way the project offers the basis for the analysis of the cultural, social and political realities of one of Europe’s suburbs.
