Part of the educational program of the exhibition of nominees of the INNOVATION competition.
What makes intelligent, educated people to fly to the other end of the globe to look at a bunch of garbage, empty canvas, a row of iron boxes and other wonders of modern art? Why indeed is all this called "art"?
Unlike the crowd in Anderson’s fairytale, shouts of “the king is naked!" have accompanied these kinds of activities since they first appeared in the world, and museums that hold such strange objects are growing in all capitals of the world like mushrooms after rain. Art theorist Dmity Gutov endeavors to explain the nature of the mysterious phenomenon of the artist in this lecture.
