Program of the festival
The festival presents the diversity of contemporary art languages. Program of the project is comprised of several directions:
The goal of the participants of the festival is to determine the main characteristics of time, its features and tendencies. The contemporary art exhibition, music and dance performances, as well as round tables with scientists will mark the parallels between art and science, and formulate the psychological landscape of the epoch.
The phenomena of interaction of the present with elements of past times, presented in the exposition, will create an original timeless environment. This environment will combine in natural way the most recent works of contemporary authors with amazing objects from the Museum storage.
The leading Russian scientists – philosophers, historians, sociologists and culturologists – will help to understand the complex interaction of times, as well as formulate a viewpoint on the notion of Zeitgeist. In the format of short precise interviews and a series of thematic articles they will formulate the analytical framework of the topic.
The festival will try to reveal the ideas laid in the objects of Museum exposition, out of time and space context, as well as develop the mechanisms of creation of the new environment by connection of principles of contemporary and traditional art.
