The Team teachable

The exhibition Hypnosis (and other states) spans works by Tony Oursler from the last 25 years. The central theme of the exhibition is rethinking the representation of hypnosis in art - via engaging with technology and media, via daydreaming, via revisiting the research of sleep and hypnosis by I.Pavlov, whose practice was closely related to St.Petersburg. This theme echoes both in Oursler’s older and newer works, creating a thread-like trail throughout the whole exhibition. Through multiple projections, Tony Oursler creates a mesmerising and enveloping environment, featuring close-ups of human eyes, images from pop culture and video collages, which all have a hypnotising effect on the individual.
RATAN 21.33 is a curatorial concept, addressing the theme of life and afterlife of the world's largest radio telescope, RATAN-600, located on the territory of the Special Astrophysical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Science in the village of Nizhniy Arkhyz, Karachay-Cherkess Republic. Co-curator: Nicolay Boyadjiev. Researchers: Evgeniya Berchul, Julia Beslemennova, Stuart Turner, Iani Zeigerman.

This exhibition emerges from Zaryadyology, a collaborative research project, carried out by anthropologist of architecture Michal Murawski together with a students and staff at the Vysokovsky Graduate School of Urbanism.

The research team carried out participant-observer research within and around Zaryadye Park; as well as organizing a series of Zaryadyological roundtables at several Moscow venues, including Triumph Gallery, the Higher School of Economics, the Dostoevsky Library and the Stalinist skyscraper on Kotelnicheskaya Embankment.

The central theme of the exhibition In the landscape’s shadow by Vladimir Chernyshev and Ustina Yakovleva is rethinking of the cultural landscape and the decentralisation of artistic practices at a time when the world had to slow down and the regular course of life was disrupted. The standstill has inspired us to have a thorough look at manual and labour-intensive techniques in the field of contemporary art and to look for inner inspiration within ourselves. Model for Consensus reflects the scattered worldview and our intention to bring together the multitude of voices of Dutch artists. Talking about consensus is a national Dutch phenomenon, which is a perfect starting point for bringing these ten transmitters, ten artists representing contemporary Dutch art scene, together. The more creative the artists are — the more self-valorizing — the more surplus of knowledge this multitude of voices can bring to the community at large. Model for Consensus exhibition presents ten contemporary Dutch artists, who work in different media, from painting and video to objects and installations: Frank Ammerlaan, Niek Hendrix, Saskia Noor van Imhoff, Gabriel Lester, Navid Nuur, Wouter Paijmans, Maaike Schoorel, Sarah van Sonsbeeck, Jennifer Tee, Guido van der Werve. Co-curator: Gijs Stork. displays an overview of Georgian contemporary art by presenting artists with diverse background. All exhibition artists belong to the generation which is part of the new dynamic scene that looks beyond the geography of their national borders. Without ignoring their cultural identity and possessing particular experience of contemporary reality, these artists make a claim to international presence and benefit from their openness and desire for exchange.
The exhibition Fractals by the Vienna-based new media artist Ozan Turkkan is the result of years of research in the field of fractal geometry, which guided the viewers into viewing the world through the orderliness of recognisable images. Fractal is one of the most difficult terms in geometry to define. In simple words, it is a geometric figure that repeats the same pattern over and over again. This means that as you get closer to an object, you begin to see endless repetitions of it. Although this seems conceptually difficult, it is a pattern we encounter every day. Our world demonstrates exceptional mathematical order.

SOCII is based on an exploration in practice of interior (intimate) and exterior (public) expression.

In the new project isn't white that which does away with darkness? artist Anna Pavlova addresses the themes of aestheticization and museification of the everyday life. The quote in the title belongs to the philosopher L. Wittgenstein and appears in the book by the British director and artist Derek Jarman “Chroma: A Book of Color”.

In the photographic installation made specifically for the Face to Face exhibition photographer and film director Menno Otten showed a collection of more than thirty portraits he shot over six years at the same tram stop in Amsterdam.

Kaleidoscope is an exhibition by the artist and sculptor Sasha Frolova, known for her unusual latex objects and performances.
