Bucharest, May 18 /Agerpres/ - The management of Azomures company announced on Wednesday that the exhibition of AGERPRES archive photographs and a chamber concert of the "Sighisoara Academy" will re-open, after 13 years, the Photosensitive Materials Plant of Targu Mures, this time for cultural events.
The inauguration event of the new cultural spaces of the said plant in Targu Mures will take place on June 9, and on this occasion also an exhibition of paintings by contemporary Transylvanian artists, will be open, made up of artworks held in private collections.
"Azomures brings back to the public attention the need to resume activity on one of the most important industrial platforms of the city, the Photosensitive Materials Plant in Targu Mures.
Closed down in 2003 for reasons that related more to the digital revolution, the platform can now become attractive for various investments in industry, but also for unusual cultural projects (...) I am honored by the fact that His Excellency, Jean-Hubert Lebet, the Ambassador of Switzerland to Romania, will be joining us. We will listen together a concert of classical music organized in collaboration with the "Cultura Viva" Association, founder of the Festival "Sighisoara Academy". Displayed at the event will be photos from the historical archives of the Romanian National News Agency AGERPRES, presented for the first time to the public in March, in Bucharest," the general manager of Azomures Mihai Anitei said in a press release.
The concert by the "Sighisoara Academy" will consist of a programme on "George Enescu - Bartok Bela, Interferences" and will be performed by musicians from Romania and from abroad: Alexandru Gavrilovici (Switzerland), Andreea Duca (Spain), Stephane Giampellegrini ( Luxembourg), Aurelian Bacan (Romania) and the Arcadia string quartet (Romania).
The Photosensitive Materials Plant has an area of some 7 hectares, holds numerous halls and a large central building, for which partners are sought after for business development. Following an investment of 15,000 euros, the company has refurbished a hall in which it will hold the cultural event on June 9, the first action that will take place here after 13 years.
Since the 1980s, the Azomures has been the photographic brand of Romania, but in the age of digitization, the Photo section of Azomures proved unprofitable and was closed down in 2003.
Since the Azomures management could not find a buyer for this building, which is in good state of preservation, and its demolition would cost very much because it was designed by Japan's Fujitsu to withstand a 9.4 degree earthquake on the Richter scale, the company has decided to transform some spaces for hosting cultural events.
The photosensitive materials section of Azomures Targu Mures was the only Romanian producer of photo films and photo products.
Until 1989, the Azomures photo films dominated the relevant Romanian market, with the Romanian cinema production having used these films, and radiology wards of the Romanian hospitals used the products made in Targu Mures.
