Discussion. Victoria Lomasko and Anna Tereshkina. The City through the Eyes of an Artist

Lecture Cycle. Alexander Bikbov: The City from the Inside
6 July 2017
19:30–21:00

DESCRIPTION

This two artists’ discussion will offer listeners a new perspective on the city and its inhabitants, and show how art can give form to what is marginalised and invisible. 

Urban routines blur the differences that create tensions and remove conflicting perspectives from the foreground of city life. An artist working with social issues can bring differences back to the spotlight and invent new ways of aesthetic expression to draw public attention to issues that are neglected. Two artists working with city spaces, social and gender issues will speak about art that can turn hidden social tensions and experiences into a clear and strong enunciation.
