Ioana Georgeta Turcan
Born in a small town in Romania, studied Humanities then Film and Interdisciplinary matters.
My work is connected to visual activism and anti-static social practice ~movement should define our present and generate an outcome from systemic beliefs either if expressed trough film or video, installation or performance, simple writings or burst-protests.
I always had a desire to challenge and express androgynous social activities undefined by gender or age. #revolutionstartsathome
