JOHN is a group of people united through the perception of belonging by similarity (affinity of intentions, thoughts, positions) and not by identification (attainment of a socially desirable status). Its topic is to overcome the anomie of the artistic platform by starting an organizational model based on mutual help and able to access without mediators to foundings for artistic projects.
There is a big imbalance between the values and the expectations that we internalize in our socialization and the legitimate ways to achieve them. Takes place, in art too, a shift towards self-centered methods in the pursuit of self-realization, that affects the real participation of everyone. Of course groups are constantly formed and breake, without needing them to be self-defined, but working in a self-defined group means working with the other’s conscience and constant mutual help, nurtured by the resources that each has taken up individually. The group becomes artistic platform – John, a common English name and surname. John is joined by the artists Lucia Bricco and Iulia Ghiţă.
