During large-scale upheavals, the issue of value orientations, which serve as the basis for our interaction with the outside world, is especially urgent. It is no coincidence that the word “value” is extremely in demand today in political and socio-cultural journalism and rhetoric. It also acts as a trigger for the Cosmoscow Talks program, which proposes to consider it in terms of the issues of value and price, which are the most important for art. The activities of the program look at prominent phenomena and trends in public life and the arts (NFT art, new educational approaches, inclusion, and so on) to find out how they redefine the concepts of price and value and form complex relationships between them. They also show that these trends bring their own value systems to our understanding of art, which are not reducible to the traditional art model but enrich it with new knowledge and relevant ideas, the diversity of which makes the cultural landscape interesting and meaningful.
The Jewish Museum and the Tolerance Center present the discussion "Outsider Art and Galleries: Integration of "special" artists into the art market" within the framework of the Cosmoscow fair
With the support of the Jewish Museum and the Tolerance Center. The broad term "outsider art" today encompasses the work of neurodivergent artists, people with exclusionary experiences, and authors without professional experience. The discussion of experts, curators and philanthropists is devoted to the current state of outsider art in the art market, the problem of definitions and official recognition of the work of artists who do not have the support of the professional community. Participants will answer the questions: is outsider art marginal art today? How does this art get into institutions and why are there separate platforms for artists with developmental disabilities? The discussion can draw attention to the problem of outsider art, its position on the contemporary art scene and draw the attention of a wide audience to this phenomenon.
Discussion “X Hour of Russian Gloss: The Last Battle for Print”
Sponsored by U Magazine. In the context of the curtailment of the activities of most Western fashion and jewelry brands in the Russian market, which means the fall of the advertising market; rising prices for paper, dyes, other printing services; as well as the revocation of licenses to publish international publications in the country, it would seem that continuing to make a print is pure altruism or suicide. We understand why it is so important to preserve the magazine fashion culture.
