This month Timisoara has been the host of Art Encounters, an event that aims at integrating Romanian contemporary art into the international context. Throughout the city, spread across multiple venues, art lovers are invited to visit and discover art exhibitions and events, talks, workshops and performances. You still have a few days left if you haven't been to any of the exhibitions yet. I've always wanted to integrate art into my shoots for the blog, but most of the times you are not allowed to take pictures in such locations. Luckily this time I was able to shoot in the Cazarma U, or the Wien Barracks as it was originally known as, a location that is not normally open for the public. I enjoyed many of the pieces on display here, but chose this one with the misshaped punching bags mainly for chromatic reasons, but also for the powerful message I got from it. For me it was not a message of violence, but of awareness of the effects of our thoughts and actions.
