Imaginary Lexicon of Cluj is a project based on the idea of performative book – a publication that attempts to describe a specific place on earth, at the same time compelling the reader to constant movement and interaction.

It is a kind of a city guide – an atlas, in which reality is mixed with fiction, while pointing to the fact that what we consider to be historical facts, are often presented within a very polarized point of view. So what is the truth and how do we reach it? Perhaps by trying to catch the spirit of a place, by recessing in the untold stories inherent within each of the residents? What happens if we mix those stories with what seems to be a historical truth?
