Joi 7 mai 2009, ora 19.00

Antropologia urbana ocupa o secventa din antropologia generala si priveste grupurile umane, sau indivizii care traiesc in conditii urbane. A urmari procesul continuu al devenirii umane, in conditii geografice variabile, unele favorabile, altele nefavorabile, a descrie si explica factorii de presiune si de modelare umana, actiunile si reactiile fiintelor umane in confruntarea cu realitatea, a urmari si analiza ce se petrece in decursul desfasurarii fenomenelor, a sti exact de la ce s-a pornit si la ce s-a ajuns, care au fost etapele prin care s-a trecut, a extrage unele "momente" reprezentative din aceste desfasurari si "a le ingheta" spre a le transforma in exponate de muzeu, iata cateva activitati de baza ce ar intra in atributiile unui muzeu de antropologie urbana. "Orasul de pe chipurile noastre" doreste sa deschida un santier arheologic in mintea fiecaruia, sa determine o atitudine fata de celalalt si, eventual, sa forteze o prognozare afectiva, emotionala, intre oameni si orasul pe care-l consuma cu fiecare generatie.

Adrian Majuru este scriitor, istoric, doctor in geografia umana.
A scris noua carti despre Bucuresti.

Urban anthropology occupies a small sequence within general anthropology and it concerns groups of people or individuals who are living in the urban environment. Following the continuos process of human development, in variable geographical conditions, some favourable and some unfavourable, describing and explaining the factors of pressure and human shaping, the peoples actions and reactions in the confrontation with real life, following and analyzing what's happening during the deployment of diverse phenomenons, knowing exactly from what it began and where it stands now, what were the stages that had to be accomplished, extracting some representative "moments" of this process and "freezing" them into museum exhibits, this are some of the basic activities of an urban anthropology museum.

"The city on our faces" wants to open an archeological site in the mind of each one of us, to induce an attitude towards others and eventually to force an affective and emotional forecast, between the people and the city consumed by each generation.

Adrian Majuru is writer, historian, doctor in human geography.
He wrote nine books about city of Bucharest.
