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

Performance - Taus Makhacheva

17:30 - 18:30hrs

Taus Makhacheva combines a dedication to our shared past with the precariousness of today. She researched acrobat traditions and asks an acrobat group to make every night a human pyramid, a small human mountain. Not only that, she also asks them to activate at the same moment the masterpieces of the museum of Makhacheva, capital of her native Dagestan. This performance takes place at exactly the same time in Kyiv, the brother city of Moscow.
