In summer 2017,  Garage continues to bring to its audience new films by contemporary artists in its special program Garage Screen. The New.

The new program continues a series of screenings featuring Russian and international artist films and materials from Garage Archive Collection. Since its launch in 2012, Garage Screen has shown Russian premieres of Daniil Zinchenko’s Elixir, Marta Popivoda’s Yugoslavia, How Ideology Moved Our Collective Body, as well as films by artists Dimitri Venkov, Evgeny Granilshikov, Victor Alimpiev, art  groups BlueSoup and Chto Delat, and other artists who have come to film from contemporary art. This summer, visitors will see five works by Russian and international artists, theorists, and performers: a video poem Communion (2016) by Keti Chukhrov; a new version of the film Canons and Thresholds (2015–2017) by Provmyza group and Volnye prostory art collective; and new video works by Ukrainian artist Nikolay Ridny, made in 2016 and 2017. All films will be introduced by their authors.
