Alina Cristea is an artist-researcher working with photography and film, currently living and working in Brussels and Bucharest. After having been living in different cities in Belgium and in the Czech Republic, where she studied Photography and Cultural Studies, she became interested in her identity as a Romanian in Europe and in her hometown, Bucharest. This led to the research project entitled “Bucharest. The City with One Inhabitant. The City-Me”, which combines photography, sound, and text. She is currently pursuing a practice-based PhD at KU Leuven and LUCA School of Arts in Belgium. Her works have been shown at ARGOS – centre for art and media, L Museum, M Museum (BE), Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen (DE) and at the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg (AT), among other places. She is a member of the research unit Intermedia (LUCA School of Arts) and of Writing Urban Places (COST Action). In 2016 she co-founded the duo collective DOI (=two in Romanian), in which she experimented with different media and explored the dynamics of the duo together with another visual artist. alina.cristea@kuleuven.be; https://linktr.ee/alinacristea
