As self-isolation continues, Garage mediators test new online formats of communication and invite listeners to join their series of conversations.
Mediation implies a friendly and casual conversation between a museum representative and a visitor. However, not everyone is comfortable being active in a conversation and openly stating their opinions to someone they don’t know. For those who prefer the role of a listener Garage has launched the new format of mediators’ dialogues.
In each session, two mediators will discuss actionism, the role of the body in art practices, and underground artistic communities of the late Soviet period, followed by questions from the listeners. This format allows for an easier and more comfortable transition from passive spectatorship to active participation. Listeners are welcome to meet the mediator and get involved in the future mediation for the exhibition.
