With their exhibition Time Capsule. Artistic Report on Catastrophes and Utopia, Chto Delat respond to the current situation in Russia, the crisis in Ukraine, and the resulting threat of a new Cold War. Together with the graduates of the School of Engaged Art they established in Saint Petersburg in 2013, the collective has created The Excluded. In a Moment of Danger, a four-channel video installation that runs just under an hour in which they reflect on their own sense of exposure and perplexity. more

RENATA LUCAS
November 21, 2014 – January 25, 2015

In site-specific interventions, she manipulates architectural structures in order to deconstruct socially defined spaces and their uses and test novel and playful possibilities, sometimes initiating a fresh discussion of ideas of privacy and public sphere, interior and exterior, or history and the present. more

PETER BARTOŠ
Situations 1945 – 2014
November 21, 2014 – January 25, 2015

His primary interest in these projects concerned the physical properties of the materials, the temporary nature of works existing only as processes, and the ways in which materials might be transformed by way of accumulation or dispersal. more
