Panopticon Project

Kurgan, 104 Sovetskaya Street

Plays, performances, dance and sound shows, and exhibitions are united by the idea of Panopticon, a collection of strange peculiarities. Panopticon’s literal meaning from Ancient Greek is “space where everything is fully visible.” Today, in the age of the Internet, the idea of total surveillance is especially relevant.

Curators: Elena Tretyakova, Vadim Osadchiy
