Any amount is welcome. All supporters will receive regular announcements about what we do and what is new at IP. A donation can bring you a copy or more of the Parkour publication series. Other rewards may include posters or postcards with IP identity elements, invitations to workshops or events held by the artists with whom the Institute of the Presents works.

Your donations contribute to the continuity of a transcultural research practice without which the online and printed content of the Institute would not exist. Research in our case means: interviews and discussions with invited artists and their close circle of family and friends/collaborators, reading time at the library and home, detective style investigations for the finding of materials hard to locate, buying books, a lot of circulation, meetings and discussions with many collaborators, research trips and a lot of communication with all the invited artists and authors. Many of these open working fronts and the time invested cannot be supported from any public funding received in Romania.

This is what the regular content production at the Institute of the Present encompasses, together with the development of the artist and theoretic resources platform and its opening towards the professional and the public:

– bi-annual publication of materials in the frame of the online platform www.institutulprezentului.ro.
– bi-annual publication of 3–5 new editions in the frame of the Parkour series. The 2017 publications are dedicated to artists Miriam Răducanu, Constantin Flondor, Ion Grigorescu, Octavian Nemescu, Lia Perjovschi, the 2019 to artists Diet Sayler and Lucian Mețianu, alongside a second edition of Miriam Răducanu’s.
– annual program of workshops and lectures centred on (self)pedagogical practices and artistic concepts.

What we learn we want to send farther, to be as accessible as possible, this is how we set ourselves to work.
