The Apocalypse of the white elephant is a questioning of the now, defined by a complete shift of paradigm. Change is at the same time inevitable and necessary: from completely different yet convergent perspectives it is both a consequence and a solution.

Such a discourse will include several opposite lines of investigation and practice, from the ones accusing the loss of values and the necessity of their preservation to the ones that move the point of view inside a virtual world or set of realities.

Critical and contemplative rather than narrative, the exhibition grows around several hypostases of transformation, centered on nuclei of artworks that identify solutions either in forms of social, behavioral, environmental and pedagogical activism or in forms of fiction, speculation and exploration of the boundaries with a metaverse that is simultaneously an extension and an alternative.

MV sci-art is a contemporary art and science centre founded by META Spațiu and the Polytechnic University of Timișoara, with the aim of generating transdisciplinary collaborations, dialogue and intersectional projects between various areas of expertise and interest.

META Spațiu (active since 2016) develops contemporary art projects that support and present the work of Romanian and international artists, with the intention of providing an insightful perspective on the art scene in Central and Eastern Europe. Until 2022, when it moved to its own space, META Spatiu operated as an ethereal art space, ,,parasitizing” other spaces – museums, galleries, public spaces – with the aim of developing medium and long-term collaborations with other artistic entities and actively contributing to the promotion of contemporary art and artists in various contexts.

The Polytechnic University of Timisoara, from the year 1920 when it was founded until today, has grown steadily thanks to the effort and dedication of outstanding academics, generations of outstanding students and the support of society and business. UPT is made up of 10 faculties and boasts over 135,000 graduates, being oriented towards the practical field of engineering and entrepreneurial activities, in line with regional economic traditions and the demands imposed by the parameters of the European technical avant-garde, complemented by new valences in the fields of administration, communication and public relations. The exceptional scientific and research activity, together with the quality of the teaching process, make the Polytechnic University of Timișoara, the oldest higher education institution in western Romania, a wonderful place to study and an ideal launch pad for a successful career.
