Launch of Humanitas. In the footsteps of Constantin Brâncusi, from Romania to Paris, on the artist's birthday

The Humanitas publishing house invites you on Monday, February 19, from 7:00 p.m., at the Humanitas Bookstore in Cișmigiu (bd. Regina Elisabeta no. 38), to a meeting with the writer Sorin Trâncă, the journalists Marius Constantinescu and Cristian Pătrășconiu and the anthropologist Alexandru Bălășescu about the volume Constantin's Road: Brâncusi's escape from Romania, a reconstruction.

Access is free, subject to availability, based on a reservation through Eventbook.

In the Constantine's road, Sorin Trânca tries to answer one of the most exciting questions regarding Brâncusi's existence: why did the sculptor actually leave on foot to Paris in 1904, after the misunderstanding regarding the bust of Carol Davila? Judging by what we know today, we can only give a speculative answer to this question. Sorin Trânca formulates it starting from the reconstruction of the route traversed by Brâncuși, as well as from imagining some fragments of the artist's diary.
