Dark Matters Pop-up Exhibition

In 2013, the purpose of Calup was to create unique “pop-up” cultural events in some of the most interesting buildings of Bucharest. 

We created an original and feasible concept for a cultural event in order to highlight the house’s potential. For 48 hours, a derelict monument in the center of Bucharest was reactivated by experimenting all three storeys: the contrast between dark and light emphasized the valuable elements of the building.

The event gathered more than 1100 people curious to visit the building otherwise inaccessible and enjoy some of the future permanent activities with potential for the house: party, ballroom and art gallery.

Thanks to this contribution, the house has been rented and it houses offices in the creative industry.
