Starting point for face art – face future is the exhibition of the German expressionists Ernst Barlach and Käthe Kollwitz at the Russian National Museum in Saint Petersburg. Today the time of both artists, the time in which so many changes were also made for our lives, is lying in distant past. What do we associate with this exhibition? Which ideas of the both artists are relevant for us? What about the perspectives of sustainability and peace in our world? Against the background of such questions, we do not want to leave artists’ works in the past, but connect them with our lives today.
These questions were asked by 20 young people from Kiev. They completed their training for becoming exhibition-ambassadors and have prepared their own art-mediating program and video exhibition during one week of intensive workshops.
