"Lonely hearts club "Café of the dancing lights". Form and discourse"

June 26, 2017 in the framework of the first exhibition of the new season of project to support young art START, SRC WINERY will be an open discussion "lonely hearts Club «Café of the dancing lights”. Form and discourse”. 

Participants will speculate about loneliness and its negative and positive sides will discuss what form can take the art to consider this issue, and talk about “the Café of the dancing lights” as an experiment, creating an exhibition-the Dating club for single people.

the Curator of the project START of the SRC WINZAVOD Faith Trachtenberg: “the Modernist model of man instilled in us a taste for the bourgeois loneliness, and postmodernism is cemented as a positive quality as a reason for pride – I was alienated, so I'm free. SEGodnosnie generation of young people across a variety of communications lonelier than the first settlers of the big cities, people from villages. We live in a time vaguely reminiscent of late brezhnevism: we have no project of the future, loneliness does not make sense, we don't know, something to live for. Every young man, whose consciousness was formed in the last 20 years, is free to exist in its own time — this is the real difference between “new loneliness”. Go there in the 1990s, 1980s or nostalgic for 2000 — every now chooses”.
