@Goethe-Institut Bucharest

During the The Long Night of the Galleries in Bucharest, The Bureau of Melodramatic Research provided creativity counselling services for all those interested. On the 11th of June 2010, at 7 o’ clock in the evening BMR opened the glass doors of its host, Goethe-Institut (long after its usual opening hours). The host was chosen because of its special relationship to the Bureau. BMR is mostly financed from the part-time bureau jobs of its founding members in Goethe-Institut Bukarest. At the same time, BMR recognizes its strategic positioning, right near the newly founded Kunsthalle Batiste, replacing Paradis Garaj, overtaken at that time by BB4 (Bucharest Biennale 4.

The treatment session was open to all the artists and other actors on the local cultural scene who felt that the role attributed to them by the contemporary society, those of seismographs, needed further training. The Bureau of Melodramatic Research has taken into account Goethe-Institut’s policy expressed by its president, Prof. Dr. Klaus-Dieter Lehman: Goethe-Institut helps actors, artists, teachers and scientists develop and unfold their competence and creativity in various ways in the host countries.

** For a creativity bonus the event supported the Presidential Campaign: The election posters were displayed for all the duration of the evening.

The counselling was provided individually in the order of the arrival. On demand, we could organize group counselling sessions.

BMR agrees to maintain confidentiality regarding its clients’ identity or other personal facts. Moreover, the counselling is free of charge.
