Online group exhibition «Black box»
A group exhibition «Black Box» is being demonstrated on the Wall online platform. 16 authors, from March 16 to April 16, 2021
Curator Ekaterina Vasilieva: «The «black box method» is a method for studying systems, when instead of the properties and interrelationships of their constituent parts, the reaction of the system as a whole to changing conditions is studied. Participants of the exhibition are a system, a «non-urgent response group» to a changing world, a new ecology, threats of various types of disasters, etc.
