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

Keynote - Saskia Sassen

20:30 - 22:00hrs

Saskia Sassen is approaching the question of “How to gather?” along two vectors: First, asking “Who are we, the citizens?” in regard to our contemporary society that is shaped by inequalities and imbalances, she will explore a possible redefinition of citizenship where the individual can trespass vertical hierarchies of power and connect with like-minded others. With a focus on Eurasia here, the second leading question “What are we witnessing?” is posed concerning current migrations and what they entail for people.
