I was born in the 90’s and missed the fall ofcommunism by five months.

I missed 2 more major shifts due to studying in the US when Romanianyouth organized mass-protests and changed the Government in 2015 and 2017.

It seems that I have missed all the revolutions that mattered, so I am provoking my own, on different grounds.

These small-scale revolutions address topics of gender, social expectations/perceptions, stereotypes, and cultural romanticism,

and engage relations between body and space, and land and property identity.
