Season mentor Lera Kononchuk
will focus with residents on working with different artistic methodologies. Season motives: research art and the embodiment of knowledge in a situation of hybridization of artistic strategies.
"Artists tend to address socially important themes in their works, to find ways to translate sharp social, theoretical and significant everyday issues into the plane of indirect experience.
However, this experience and the reflections associated with it are sometimes produced not so much by the development of the topic as by the very vague nature of artistic objects and practices, their opacity. Can we speak about knowledge in this case? If so, what is the nature of this knowledge? And what can work with different artistic methodologies give in this sense?
Among the invited speakers, in addition to active participants in the artistic environment, are curators, artists and theorists who practice an interdisciplinary approach and question the boundaries of artistic expression and humanitarian research.
