As part of the international project "The Third Space" we would like to invite you to artist talks by:
Olga Jitlina (Sankt-Petersburg)
Olga Jitlina speaks about art work she has produced over the last 5 years, dealing with the topic of migration and social shifts in the Post-Soviet space. The Agency of Utopian News, is a series of publications on mass-media, titled as a humorous and absurdist attempt to explore the power of political imagination and confusion. The migrant board game Russia, The Land of Opportunity is an attempt to find a way to depict a variety of life-scenarios involving labour migrants coming to Russia from ex-Soviet states. She speaks of her latest story project, named after Nasreddin Hodja, in which humour is the only weapon.
Michail Tolmachev (Moscow/Leipzig)
Michail Tolmachev speaks about his approach of working with artistic method, on issues surrounding the development of documentary visual practices under the pressure of military technologies; their image production, and the relations between information, and, opinions.
