Report from Kiev

In the midst of the Swine-Flu pandemic where schools, theatres and most public institutions were closed, Vision Forum in collaboration with Yulia Usova and PAI in Stockholm organized a lecture series (breaking local laws by doing so). Artist Olav Westphalen and a group of students from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm joined us and made a series of improvised and greatly enjoyable performances at Les Kurbas Theater Center. New contacts were made and old ones created (without wearing any face masks).

The above picture is from Olav's talk at Collection Gallery which was generously supported by the Embassy of Sweden. The pictures below are from Per Hüttner's talk at Les' Kurbas Theater Center, where he served Chicken Kiev during his presentation. (Photos by Sofia Rundgren)

Keep your eyes peeled on: http://tig-kiev.blogspot.com/ for more pictures, texts and information about the events in November and upcoming Invisible Generation projects.

Below a few pictures from the performances at Les' Kurbas Theater Center.
