The lecturers will introduce the economic and social changes of the last 5 years, the situation of the Russian contemporary art and the Chto delat? initiative, and the participants can look at the film ‘Protest Match’, which was made during the G-8 meeting in St. Petersburg in 2006, and is processing the story of a failed political protest.
