Behind the mighty eighteenth-century wall of the oldest enclosed convent in Poland – Benedictine convent in Staniatki, near Krakow – the life of twelve nuns in their 70s goes on. Our protagonists – nuns Anuncjata and Benedykta (40 years in convent) – introduce us to the world behind the wall. They show us the world of convent in true colours, without stereotypes. This is the film about silence said aloud.
"Dramatic and Mild"
The V-A-C art foundation is transforming the former GES-2 electric power station in Moscow into a new cultural space for the capital. In 2017, before work had even begun, a festival called Geometry of Now was held inside the station. As part of the festival, Wassily Kandinsky’s painting Dramatic and Mild was shown in Russia for the first time. In order to see the painting, visitors had to enter the workers’ recreation room, which measured just 4 x 4 metres.
"Out of gardens"
A paradise is emerging on earth. It is neither a dream nor a utopian delusion but an opportunity for a new kind of society. A step beyond the human as it has been known. A step we don’t dare to consummate.
