BAIKONUR NOW is the first part of a series of artistic projects dealing with a number of 39 historic cinemas in Moscow living districts. This cultural and historical context of Soviet and urban cultural institutions is facing fundamental changes. Many cinemas have been closed, and in the near future they will get a new meaning. Information about upcoming projects with the participation of Yuri Palmin and Vasilena Gankovska are following soon.
APXIV is an independent self-organization of artists, created in January 2017, on the territory of the NIIDAR (Scientific and Research Institute for Long-Distance Radio Communications) in the premises of the former archive. APXIV was founded to create its own and collaborating with other art environments. In their works, the artists of APXIV focus on the artistic process and try to get away from the standard approach to exhibition practices. For example, all exhibitions are held in the format of a one-day event, and the exhibitions itself is often has a form of a single statement.
The Austrian Cultural Forum in Moscow is the cultural representative office of the Austrian Republic on the territory of the Russian Federation. The main objective of the Forum is to work with Russian and Austrian artists in the context of acute and relevant topics. This particular project is part of a bigger project called "THE PERIPHERY OF THE BIG CITY", the implementation of which is planned in 2018 - 2019.
