Our artistic practice is inevitably subjected by the external and internal censorship. In the first case we experience an acute emasculation and conventionality of art pieces that finds no actual place in the social and cultural reality that surrounds the artist. In the second case, when the number of the control points on the path of creation turns excessive, art either gets lost in the bureaucratic fuss of internal censor without t receiving a permission for its own offtake or become lifeless and «professional» – so we stop seeing the artist in his/her artwork and start hearing the predictable voices of the systems more and more clear.
On this show we aim to send all the captured censors for a day-off and give ourselves freedom to touch the topics that turned out to be in the area of unspoken, and which are normally suppressed both by institutions and our own views and concepts.
