Examining different forms of collectivities — from
the nuclear family to assemblies of human and
nonhuman agents — the exhibition Based on these
new dependencies, we define five normal forms by
the Leipzig based art space D21 aims at reflecting
and nudging the evolution of social relation-ships,
articulating unarticulated desires towards new
relations and fostering propositions about how we can
live together. In oder to do so, the exhibition looks at
a historical moment when this situation was already
acute: the exhibition and the accompanying program
are geared towards the resurrection of the Proletkult
spirit to act as a training ground for the radical
recombination of social relationships.
Based on these new dependencies, we define five
normal forms shows the already existing and establishes
new bonds and kinships between the works
from the MMOMA collection and the contemporary
works. The exhibition space draws inspiration from the
different functions performed by the workers' clubs. It
acts not only as a place to experience art, but also as a
library, a training ground, and an oracle — changing its
function according to the activities taking place.

Participants:  

Lyudmila Baronina

The project raises the questions of “closed”, imaginary
spaces which emerged from the social rituals and
practices and were built by the time flow. The first
chapter of the project will take place in abandoned
city Akamara in Abhazia, which is used by children
to play in. Standards of the imaginary society which
took over the city, objects and sculptures will enter
the space. The show will recreate the immersive space
where viewer could enter and become part of the
simulated game.

Dynamic chaos invites the viewer to see the complex
Brownian structures of the world, enclosed in the form
of everyday phenomena: street fussiness, traffic. The
apparent ambiguity of action becomes a dynamic
structure of reality.

Today Today we put an equal sign between “productivity”
and “success”. We think that success determines a lot.
Competitiveness becomes the second driving force.
We climb a fictitious pedestal even when our body gives
us the signal to stop. But it is only after the moment of
forced respite that we are ready to live and play by our
own rules. Games on One’s Own is an experimental
project where performative actions are of main
importance - as on the level of a single work of art and
the medium, as well as in the dialogue between a viewer
and an artist. The exposition includes games which
were found or created by artists. Here the opponent
is excluded, the meanings and rules of the game are
reversed. The exhibition space will remain a place where
the personal, the political, and the visual start to interact,
suggesting new forms of interrelations.

A flaw is any characteristic of a product that renders it
unsuitable for use. It seems that an artist is an error in
the worldwide consumerist value system, a mistake that
should be fixed.

The Kovcheg Exhibition Hall together with RUDN
University is holding a competition "The Best Youth
Curatorial Project — 2018". The theme of the contest
is "MEDIAzakhvat” (Media Сapture). The concept of
media is extensive and includes all means and channels
of communication that allow the forming, transmission
and processing of information. Within modern culture
media is considered in the context of technological
innovations that allow a person to expand their cognitive
abilities and experience of communication with the world.
Media is both content and form: different materials and
techniques with characteristic and specific properties
become means and channels of communication.
Topic "MEDIAzakhvat” (Media Сapture) proposes the
consideration of media not only as a set of relevant
innovative technologies, but also as an archetype,
allowing man to communicate with society, with nature
and with the non-real.

Our project mostly focuses on liminal states
and territories: the merging of biological (body)
and technological, the influence of viruses on
systems, the ‘unconscious’ of network structures…
We build on the concept of “the horror of philosophy”
expressed by Eugene Thacker in his book “In the Dust
of this Planet”. We examine the reception of horror
focusing on the practice of acting and expanding
the sensuous. Fear ceases to be a psychological factor
included in the field of social relations; it becomes
the factor of ecology, integrated in our every day life
on an almost tactile, material level.

Alexander Kutovoy

Mechanical arm is built on an idea that human
existence — and therefore an artist»s existence — today
has no value. The hero of the day is a robot, the author
is a neural network, and the performer is a mechanical
arm. The new monumental art becomes a documentation
of subsequent stages on the way to the technological
singularity.
A fascination that posthuman brings makes one want to
understand its nature. A traditional artistic background
(the faculty of monumental sculpture in art academy)
dictates the author a method for this research — a study
of the form through contemplation and replication of an
object. Whereas institutional inertness impels to create
the school of robo-depiction and an institution for study
and interpretation of these images. The framework of this
project involves organizing open sessions with modelling
and pencilling robots, as well as an educational program
about robotization, its history, and evolution.

The beliefs connected with hair exist practically in all
people. A consideration of the relation of today's artists
to these intimate artefacts, their place and a role in
modern culture is the theme of this exhibition.

The exhibition concerns the issue of violence; it focuses
on what causes aggressive behaviour as well as how the
victim becomes the aggressor, the psychological and
physiological effects of violence on people as well as
personal stories and society’s response to it (empathy,
victim blaming, etc.). For Varvara Grankova, art is a mean
of communication, emotional engagement with the
environment and coping with life’s difficulties.

Moody Possibilties is a hand-print project which aims
to function like a stream of consciousness. The various
fragments of texts and the patterns question our cultural
points of reference and the utopian idea of an aesthetic
perception of daily life. The various topics evoqued,
such as the status of the artwork or the claiming of an
organic and non-linear way of working, are treated in
accordance to an idea of transdisciplinarity and complex
thinking. This open system is nourished by the subjects,
discussions, people and cultural productions the artist
was working with during the residency in Moscow.

25Kadr Gallery (29 Novokuznetskaya St., bld. 1)

About Me, Please, About Me — the situation that leads
to the judgment of taste, where the image can be found
in the gap between its perception and reality. The
project shows how both the idealistic and the realistic
optics of the peering glance turn out to be reserved
in aesthetic dandyism.

Art chooses paradoxical hybridisation, it doesn’t aim to
serve the utilitarian needs of today’s society but aims to
convert the focus of public opinion to zones previously
hidden from it, and to approaches that construct the
opposing scenarios of development, giving the society
new opportunities not only in the field of aesthetics
but in the area of interpersonal communication. At the
exhibition the spectator encounters an assembly of
incongruous aesthetics and works which enter the logic
of paradox with other exhibits of the exhibition while
remaining in the same area.

Our exhibition is intended to pour light on the infernal
depths of late Putin’s Moscow; and to cast its heavenly
peaks into darkness. What political-aesthetic
complexities and contradictions condense in the park
itself and around it? Which rhetorics and aesthetics,
ideologies and controversies, patronage and exchange
logics, legacies from the past and images of the future,
come together on the volatile terrain of this heavenly
portal? The artists participating in the exhibition have
created their works in dialogue with the research process
and, in particular, with numerous “key phrases” (or
“mytho-memes”) pertaining to Zaryadye, identified in
the course of the research. Among these are: “a portal
not only to hell, but also to paradise”; “Putin’s gift”; “the
sacred centre of the New Russia”; “a symptom of Russia’s
internal colonisation”; “the ungrateful Muscovite” and
“freedom machine”.

When I look into the fog of the unknown, the radio wave
reaches the boundaries of the new body on the edge of
the universes and maybe it dreamed about it, in all eras.
In their works, artists reflect on the presence of the
human in the tech web, about the space in which he
appears and disappears.

Boa Constrictor Digesting an Elephant is an effort to
analyse and understand the nature of the kidulting of the
generation, the crisis at 35 years old,
as well as the phenomenon of erosion of the age
structure of the society in the 21st century.

Zugzwang is a reflection of the author on his past
experience — the events that a person tries in vain to
retain in his memory. The theme emerges as a kind of
promise of getting acquainted and penetrating into a
personal story and of immersing oneself in an account of
what has happened.

APXIV 24 (12/11 1st Bukhvostov St. bld. 5)
May 21 — July 22 (24 hours)
The project will be available live for 24 hours on the APXIV web pages. Follow the updates on Fb.

Gosha Golitsyn, Lika Gomiashvili , Katya Granova, Nikita Kayem , Olga Klimovitskaya , Sophia Ovchinnikova , Valentin Pirollo , Ruslan Polanin, Vladimir Savostin, Anastasia Soboleva, Maria Cheloyants, Ya Nzi

APXIV artists are locked in APXIV-space for 24 hours.
Every hour they make an exhibition, or more precisely,
an artistic outpouring. Up to 20 cameras will provide
viewers with 24-hours broadcasting online on various
internet resources. No visitors can be present in person
during these 24 hours. We invite viewers to observe our
happening online on several windows of various devices
or surf through the internet platforms. Most of the art
works, installations and performances will be thought
out in advance and form a certain script, but at the same
time there will always be a chance for improvisation
and experiment. APXIV 24 Hours is a happening or
a performance, a demonstration of the work of selforganisation
and how it functions. It also appeals to
the question of the undivided time of work and rest,
which leads to an even more intensified priority of the
process over the result. We are elaborating on the topics
of the economy of presence, acceleration of the world
(including in connection with new media) and an attempt
to catch up with this movement.

CCI Fabrika (18 Perevedenovsky Lane, Arthouse hall)
July 12 – 29
Tue–Sun: 12:00–22:00
Curator / curators:   Sasha Puchkova
Participants:  

Researching group

Getting into the space of the exhibition hall the viewer is
placed under the influence of the transmedial exposure,
which is constantly changing according to the concept
of the curator. The exhibition is the result of the meetings
and discussions formed by the Research Team.
The main goal of the researchers is formulating the
possible laws for the existence of the unknown object
of the future. The visible manifestations of these laws to
the viewer are soundscapes, installation, performance,
media discussions. They are forming the program of
project’s events. The audio component of the project is
developed by the curator and performative group within
the framework of the laboratory-study of the influence
of sound properties on the formation of a community
bounded by a common territory.

MYTHS Within the international contemporary art festival Ars Hortus (26 Mira Avenue, bld. 1)

The word “myth” in one of its original interpretations
meant a baseless statement, fiction as opposed to
rational and reasoned knowledge. The romance and the
potential of this interpretation lie in the possibility of
hiding in the “fluctuating structure” of a myth any images
and meanings that open our world from an unfamiliar,
sacred and irrational side. Syncretic consciousness gives
rise to stories that are different from anything else, since
it does not rely on anything other than itself. The meaning
of this irrational freedom is to open the other side of our
consciousness, completely replacing the mundane with
beautiful images, heroes and stories.

Gallery of The Slovak Institute in Moscow (27 2nd Brestskaya St.)
July 12–20
Tue–Fri: 10:00–17:00
Curator / curators:   Martin Ševovitch
Participants:  

Martin Ševovitch, Peter Čintalan

Martin Ševčovič introduces a collection created by using
the unique liquid matrix technology that he invented
during his dissertation research, when examining the
graphics medium and trying to find a way to create a
print in process. The main aim of experimental prints
is creating the visual symbols of the building blocks
of cognitive individuality. The process created by fluid
matrix printing shows the imaginary and transformative
force of these minor, and sometimes hidden, narratives
of artificial nature. Peter Cintalan uses photographic
media to record the experimental prints of Ševčovič in
the real world. Cintalan, in his photographic series, draws
attention to the influence of the external environment
and factors on the object. The reflection of the
surrounding environment creates a unique imprint on the
unrepeatable surface of the carrier, making it identifiable;
the strictly cut shape evoke a sample of the material
prepared for the experiment; the imperfection
of the material surface can lead to the uniqueness
of the object.

What the hell is happening here? (WHHH) is a board game
for artists, curators and researchers to discover alternative
forms of art education. The main motive is Russian
social history and the lack of specified institutional
trajectories. Indeed, WHHH only imitates a board game, in
practical terms it takes the form of a dialogue, conducted
under certain rules. The territory of the unknown becomes
the main focus. Questioning and drawing parallels
between the already explored context of the nineties,
curators map out the art education sphere in Russia.

A video-opera based on real events, created as a result
of the collaboration of the artist and composer. The
plot of the opera tells the story about Ross Ulbricht —
the creator of the site Silk Road, sentenced to life
imprisonment for the attempt to give people freedom.

Gorky Park Museum (9 Krimsky Val St.)
August 16 – Septembr 30
Tue–Sun: 11:00–22:00
Curator / curators:   Robbie Schweiger
Participants:  

Berenice Nauta, Suzie van Sraaveren

Bernice Nauta’s works are relics from the stories of the
fictional characters she creates. By working from the
points of view of these protagonists, Nauta feels free
to keep a kind of personal distance from the works she
makes, whether they are paintings or music. Suzie van
Staveren also tries to create a personal distance with
her abstract recomposable sculptures, which are shape
shifters between the two and three-dimensional world.
The composition of the different elements is often
influenced by the participation of other parties and by the
specifications of a certain space. In The Compromise new
fictional characters by Nauta will participate in Staveren’s
work creating a dialogue of multiple perspectives.

Participants:  

Nastya Miro

Information is saturating our world day by day, shouting,
hissing, and interrupting itself, in the end becoming
monotonous noise. Noise we often prefer to ignore, but
which still shapes our perception of news, situations, and
people. What could we know about a media-person we
have never met in our life? Nastya Miro chooses a very
careful non-intrusive way to talk about her characters:
she uses warmly-colored tempera to create a cozy
environment for viewers to meet her characters, but
keeping noise as symbolic background and as a reminder
that it’s always around and maybe it’s already a part of
their personalities.

"Dummy" in our context is a young artist, striving to
determine the recipe for success in the contemporary art
field and throw off the shackles of institutional apparatus.
The curatorial project based on a scientific study will
bring together artists of the generation Y. The exposition
will include the integrated mediums as a result of
reflection on the extracted lifehack coordinate.
Gen Y is characterised by the enthusiasm towards finding
the answers to the questions through confronting the
dummies' consciousness with the modern realities in
an irreversible, infinite web. Gen Y wants to obtain the
looseness of thought in art space by settling the context
of the present.
"Five Lifehacks for 'Dummies'" is placing the question in a
new attempt of receiving an answer:
1. Lifehack – Search for the truth/ Search for true
meaning
2. Lifehack – Utopian dreams / Romance of selfrealization
3. Lifehack – Memory / Reproduction of consciousness
4. Lifehack – Egalitarianism / Free society
5. Lifehack – The art of watching / Short attention
