Venice Architecture Biennale “Time Space Existence” (Italy) 2014
Project “Apocalypse in Art”

The paradox of our time is that two genius variations of future— progressive and apocalyptic—suddenly start to assimilate and duplicate each other. The spirit of apocalypses holds sway over modern culture and slowly infecting everything around. How will this virus affect art? Will there still be a place for an art in society? It feels like we are about to reconsider meaning of the art. Today is the time of fast living, but the process of switching from old to new culture format can be really sustained. This procedure is decelerated by society, people feel related to slowly dying cultural models, traditional relations.

Recent conditions can cause a genesis of art’s meaning and role, that would be completely different from one we have got on the edge of XX century. Back there, art was an innovative and progressive symbol, and now it started to loose positions. I believe that art is key to renewal, button that will slow the progress—just exactly what we do really need. But where will art reincarnate? Museums and government institutions, would speculate on the process and give fake feeling that art and progress is something equal. We are faced with the need to justify a new universalism that can take us beyond the personal worlds and beyond capitalist totality. To make a difference we have to be an art, to live art, we have to turn our existing into art.
