The eponymous “FLAT SPACE” is an architectural structure inspired by the standard flat in Moldavian SSR. Given the impossibility of open, public exhibition of the artistic underground, in the 1970s and 80s it became popular to host art exhibitions in private homes. This module is removed from the context of block of flats and housing estate by the artist Stefan Rusu and placed on one of the squares in the Moldovan capital Chisinau, thus symbolically taking the discussion from the flat into public space. As an open gallery, it is a place for animating and presenting artistic projects, cultural information point and a platform for meetings and talks. Several projects are created for and around FLAT SPACE.
