Beschreibung (nur Englisch):

“Processes of a commercialization of space take place radically and rapidly in Russia,” say the curators. “The question is – is it possible to democratize and open up public spaces via artistic interventions?” In the exhibition which exemplarily focuses on Russia, main actors of the Russian illegal urban art scene scrutinize the ways in which activism art changes urban topographies.

Partly monumental installation, partly subtle research, the artistic interventions in urban spaces break and poetize everyday life. At the same time, they are a rebellious call for participation below the economic, institutional and political radar. Grischa and urban art master 0331C reinvent graffiti art with petroglyphs in an urban context. The Urban Fauna Lab experiments with urbanized flora and fauna. Timofey Radya dominates the urban landscape with his critical, expansive installations. And dance cooperative Isadorino Gore integrates the “unforeseeable and incompatible” in their artistic interventions, “the way the Russian government demonstrates it.”

New Urban Reality show is part of Coordinate System – an international platform aimed to enhance the dialogue and exchange experiences in the areas of public space research and public space transformation by means of artistic practice.
