Young people born in 1990-e years, not understand and do not know “enemies” of the past, but the echoes of the fears of the older generations is worrying. This becomes apparent now, when our primitive fears and perceptions of the enemy as something different, unknown and therefore dangerous reach the limit. Exhibition “enemy” — not politicized history, and experiment-a study in which ten students are positioning the enemy as a family drama, inner conflict, the eternal problem of fathers and children, a threat to the security of the past, a violation of the right to privacy and other relevant "fears" of the modern world. Artists choose a variety of media, producing statements in the format «new sincerity”, which is characterized by a particular perception of the world, sensuality and openness
