How to gather? Acting in a Center in a City in the Heart of the Island of Eurasia

Under challenging circumstances, the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art opts for a radical format and changes its structure: the biennale will be condensed into ten days. Artistic, discursive and reflective moments will shape the space. Located in the Pavilion No.1 of VDNKh, it is here that the Moscow Biennale will evolve, as a think tank in real time.

Biennale: Sept 22 - Oct 1, 2015
Documentary exhibition project: Oct 3 - Oct 11, 2015

In 2000, Alexander Ugay founded the creative group Bronepoezd in partnership with Roman Maskalev. The group produces cinema-objects in the form of short experimental film-parables and film-performances that were recorded on 16 mm film by old cameras manufactured in the Soviet period. Ugay's main topic is time—how the past affects the future and vice versa, and how reality is transformed under the pressure of these streams. 

A video by Alexander Ugay will be presented during Moscow Biennale 2015 at VDNKh Pavilion No.1.
