The artists who created iMapp Bucharest 555 have been selected through a competition held on the event’s website: Maxin10sity from Hungary, The Macula from Czech Republic, Damien Fountain from France, Les Ateliers Nomad from Romania, and SevenZero from Poland. Once known as “Little Paris”, over the years, the city has seen a number of rebirths. ArCuB, the Bucharest City Hall and Bucharest Cultural Center, who organized the weekend festival, filled the weekend’s itinerary with music, art exhibitions and installations, performances, and comedy. Once the show began around 11pm, ArCuB encouraged audience members to text them the name of the video that was their favorite.
