Raluca Croitoru is a Romanian visual artist currently based in the Netherlands. She holds a B.A. from UNARTE Bucharest and a Cum Laude M.F.A. degree from the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam. Croitoru’s practice is embedded in the everyday and plays with the politics of representation, abstraction and embodiment. Her ongoing interest in systems of exchange, social choreographies and knowledge hierarchies finds its translation mainly through performances, videos and text. Croitoru’s most recent works have been performed or displayed at Playground Performance Festival@STUK (BE), W139 Amsterdam, Tent Rotterdam and Showroom Mama (NL), Bucharest Museum of Contemporary Art, InnerSound #4 Festival (RO), FRANK Gallery (SE), Vogel House Salzburg (AU) and Thessaloniki Museum of Contemporary Art (GR). She has been a performer for Simone Forti’s Here it Comes exhibition at Vleeshal Center for Contemporary Art (NL), Action PRL Festival organized by The Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle (PL) and Katarina Zdjelar’s Tanz für Käthe Kollwitz videowork (NL).
