Program: [Art, memory, history]

Place: National Centre for Contemporary Arts, the small hall

Today, despite the continuing interest towards the traditions of Russian avant-garde, the sociological experiments of creating museum exhibitions in the 1920s are almost completely forgotten. However, a fresh look on the past from the early 21st century may be able to discern in the century-old attempts to create new art the universal traces of “emancipative art.”

In his speech artist Arseny Zhilyaev will talk about the poorly studied avant-garde museum practices of the 1920s and their importance not only in history but also in today’s art process.
