Founder and coordinator of CAA /CAA (Contemporary Art Archive and Center for Art Analysis) an organic still in process project (under different names since 1985) and KM (Knowledge Museum based on an interdisciplinary research project from 1999-today)
Her activity can be summarized as a journey from her body to the body of knowledge and was show in more then 500 exhibitions, lectures, workshops around the world.
CAA/CAA (Contemporary Art Archive/Center for Art Analysis ) is
A contemporary art museum in files focusing on art and its context, art theory and practice, cultural studies and critical theory. Comprehensive (international) database “a voice-activated” capsule of knowledge. A frame and platform for ideas, dialogue, communication, empowerment focusing on issues that reflect the current debate in the art field and new cultural theories — about the social and political relevance of art, its autonomy and its changes.
Under different names, the CAA has been active since 1985 in Lia and Dan Perjovschi’s home in Oradea, in the frame of the experimental studio at Art Academy Bucharest, in Lia and Dan Perjovschi’s artist studio in Bucharest, in national and international museums, galleries, non-profit or artist-run spaces and in the mass media. CAA has been initiated and is maintained by Lia Perjovschi with the help of Dan Perjovschi and supported by various people, institutions and NGOs from all over the world. CAA is currently working with an investigative method, searching for sense, hidden and lost ideas, relevant works and authors - normalcy as exception - and preserving a dizzydent (from dizzy) critical attitude in a context of consumerism and intellectual stagnation.
my last project (1999 today) in which I recycle my other projects
Knowledge Museum is a project in which I recycle all my other projects, I present “like an architect” the model - on a table, on the walls, or in a space, using diagrams from my interdisciplinary research - from books, reviews, the Internet and objects both mainly in museums stores around the globe from 1999-till today (used for educational purposes). The museum comprises 7 (seven) departments: Earth, Body, Art, Culture, Knowledge, Science, and Universe.
It is not ‘The Museum “- it is a basic starting point.
Is my solution for the question What we can do (to improve or change)?
Knowledge is Surviving (helping you doing the best you can out of what you have)
Knowledge is transforming the "object" in the "subject" of the history
