WINZAVOD Contemporary Art Center and Department of Research Arts is happy to present an experimental project Unofficial Language. The project brings together the studies of artists’ life in the city with artworks. The exhibition is a part of the parallel program of the 5th Moscow International Biennale For Young Art.


Unofficial Language will show more than 20 young Moscow-based artists with diverse backgrounds and professional experience who work in different media and with various topics. The exhibition is an attempt to construct a broad image of this generation in its relation to artists’ individual experience of living in the urban environment of Moscow.


The first part of the exhibition will consist of the materials and data collected using the methods of social sciences. Each artist outlined his or her everyday routes in Moscow, the image of the city and also marked emotionally various parts on the map of Moscow. The analysis is based upon the methods of mental mapping that give an opportunity to see the city via the eyes of an artist.


Artworks will compose the second part of the exhibition. Artists will choose the artworks, which represent their art in the best way possible and thus there will be no usual curatorial selection. The series of video interviews which will be a part of the exhibition provide a perspective for visitors to understand the main issues that artists are concerned with, their relation towards art, the city and peculiarities of the visual language of their generation.
