ArtConcept presents program of multimedia exhibitions under the title All History is Contemporary History.

 

Being interdisciplinary, the program aims to investigate the intersections of history, science, technical progress on the territory of contemporary art.

 

Special focus is on the opposition cultural vs. natural and its ramifications on the human condition nowadays. The ensuing crisis of modern man will be the point of departure for a few explorations into controversies of classical and industrial societies, a rupture with tradition, a correlation of degeneration and sociopolitical decay.

 

Science-based approach, visual data and theoretical underpinnings of innovative research are integral to multimedia exhibits, comprising video art, documentary and experimental cinema, installations, animation, as well as classical medium of drawing.

 

Politics as being, political interaction of people, alienation of the individual from society and in relation to labor cannot but form a central axis for contemporary art expressions. This can be done through synergetic perspective drawn upon vestiges and witnesses from the fields of history, evolution, culture, scientific theory and practice.

Svetlana Mazoulevskaia. Thanatos oder Durchbruch der Mass

 

Painting series of a Russian artist residing in Switzerland exemplifies expression of a personal existence in the world with decidedly conceptual, ephemeral, even opaque means. Embracing formal languages that can seem startling or difficult in their conceptual conceits or idiosyncratic references, the artist nonetheless comment—often directly—on the state of the world around her, highlighting her place within it or simply attesting to the existence of an outside reality full of conflicts, politics, and life.
