6th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art
September 10, 2015 13:03


Over 70 artists, critics and researchers from Russia and aborad will participate in the 6th Moscow Bienniale of Contemporary Art from September 22 to October 1.
The ten-day forum HOW TO LIVE TOGETHER? A VIEW FROM CITY IN THE HEART OF EURASIA ISLAND to be held in the  Central pavilion of the ENEA (aka VDNKh) will become the main project of the 6th Moscow Bienniale.
Participants will try to bridge modern art and social perceptions of it by creating a system where art and the audience will  interact directly. In quest of the answer to questions "How to interact?", "How to live together?" and How to use new opportunities in the future?" participants of the program will reconsider the borders of our present-day ideas about art.
Interactive communication establishes tides that promote development of awareness in the society. Specially for this purpose the  MediaMachine section will be created at the biennial. It will take a separate hall of the First Pavilion at the ENEA to record and process  all the goings-on of the event for its further  reconsideration. Photographers, cameramen and editors will work here.
For ten days, from 2 pm to 10 pm daily from September 22 to October 1, 2015, the Moscow Bienniale of Contemporary Art will turn into an open venue replete with creative energy, works of art and their authors. The extensive program of the forum provides space for both preplanned actions and creative impromptus.
