On October 8 at 19:00, the White Room Foundation hosted
discussion at the exhibition "Everything will be all right" on the topic:
"The world of art after the pandemic."
The coronavirus gives rise to its own realistic mythology about death and illness, which can come suddenly and change the course of life for all mankind. Previously, it seemed that this only happened in the distant past, like a plague in the Middle Ages. Now it suddenly became obvious that a sudden total illness can block the mechanisms of interaction of society.
Let's talk about lockdown culture and what institutions and artists are doing and not doing in a situation of self-isolation, as well as what changes have taken place in the art market after the pandemic.
