Survival Kit

Cultural Transit Foundation, Ekaterinburg, 12 Pushkina Street

 The exhibition sets out to raise questions on subtlety in artistic practices within countries that develop low intensity democracies, in this instance Turkey and Russia, and invites artists to research methodologies of survival in the context of (self)censorship.

Opening on October 5 at 19:00

Curators: Nikolay Alutin, Naz Cuguoğlu, Serhat Cacekli

Participants: Evgeny Granilshchikov, Larissa Araz, Irina Petrakova, Cansu Çakar, Dmitriy Filippov, Özgür Demirci, Marina Ragozina, Didem Erk, Dmitry Lyashenko, Eşref Yıldırım

Young and emerging artists more often find notion of “subtlety” closely connected to their artistic practices and live in a state of uncertainty, being unprotected from the forms of pressure that they expect to follow.

“Survival Kit” is the result of collaboration of ten Turkish and Russian artists and their research of different methodologies to create works that are both united by the idea of “subtle art” yet divided by their specific practices.
