At The Institute of Change – preview Paul Dunca

The Institute of Change by Paul Duncă is based on investigation, documentation and archiving of personal stories collected from local reality, concerning mainly the Romanian transgender community. The work focuses on the issues of undertaking one’s body/ sexuality / genre identity and of the confrontation between the intimate narration of the body and public perception, presenting a community that is completely invisible locally.

Paul Dunca –queer body activist– was born in Bucharest, where he continues to live and work. After graduating “I.L. Caragiale”National Theatre University he tried too never say “NO”. This is why his work is so eclectic, including the most diverse form of expression: working as a waiter, on his own MTV show, community art and go-go, performing for Romania in the Vennice Art Biennial, to various contributions to glossy magazines and acting in local films and performances at the National Dance Centre of Bucharest, as well as on the stage of Judson Church, New York.
