“I am trying to explain that things, people are made up of very varied lines, and that they do not necessarily know which line they are on or where they should make the line which they are tracing pass; in short, there is a whole geography in people, with rigid lines, supple lines, lines of flight, etc.” (“Dialogues”, Gilles Deleuze & Claire Parnet)

Image and Sound is a cultural NGO focused on visual and sound arts, with a keen interest in the theoretical framework of contemporary art. We aim to draw new lines of sight – and – sound experience and to encourage artists to create unconventional connections between different art forms.
Image and Sound is the online platform of the “Cultural Center for Image and Sound” NGO founded by Emilian Mărgărit, Elena Dobîndă and George Călugăru in 2017, Bucharest, driven by their practical and professional curiosity for contemporary art, philosophy, cinema, experimental and avant-garde music.

Elena Dobîndă

She studied Political Sciences at Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iaşi, then Scenography at National University of Theatre and Film “I.L. Caragiale” in Bucharest. Since 2017, she has dedicated her time to the older passion for film, music and fine arts, trying to synthesize these creative directions in her studio experiments.

Emilian Mărgărit

With a PhD in Philosophy (contemporary French Philosophy), he has published articles in collective volumes and scholarly journals, and got scholarships to study in Konstanz (Germany) and Paris. Since 2014 he settled in Bucharest and has been working as a PR, cultural manager and occasionally writes about contemporary art.
