The Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art and The Garage Museum of Contemporary Art united their efforts under the support of Pro Helvetia Swiss Arts Council in order to create an educational program and to publish the Russian edition of Carmen Moersch’s Time For Cultural Mediation.
Curators of the programme Alina Belishkina, Daria Malikova and Marina Romanova believe, that upon preparing this publication it is important to sustain the dialogic format and to engage professional community into the discussion of mediation in culture: the way it is perceived within Russian context over almost a decade since the original publication.
This series of online seminars offers a framework for educators, curators, and researchers of pedagogical practices from Switzerland and Russia to address questions of art mediation raised in the publication and to share their takes on mediation’s possibilities, goals, and functions. The Russian edition will be published in early 2022 and will be freely available online.
