  Military - the patriotic hysteria is treated
By means of art

In the Center of the modern art of Zvereva the exhibition under hysterical enough slogan " has opened; the Native land or death . The consultation from 50 Moscow artists led by curators Andrey Filippovym and Claude Ravan has gathered to make the diagnosis captured the country military - to a patriotic indisposition.

Barak Zverev - the centre is similar whether to field hospital, whether on provincial clinic. Modestly, but it is pure. The whitewashed walls - a sign not only modern art gallery, but also hospital chamber. Two numbers of benches - the cots covered with white bed-sheets. On them, as well as it is necessary, heads from pass - patients that is products: objects and mini - installations from children`s toys. In the end of pass - a hospital wheelchair with something decayed, and further a black doorway. On walls to brighten up impression from kazenno - out-patient design, pictures. Such is an exhibition general view.
products have fixed the diversified traumas and obsessions. Someone in the sleep creeps in approach of times of the Second World War (group the Fourth height ) or somnambulicheski tries to grope limonku (Nikolay Kozlov, Ferrum ). Something in it is from absurdizma djurrenmattovskoj Winter war in Tibet and simultaneously from game in vojnushku .
Someone children`s nightmares (torment Farid Bogdalov, Horror of night and also images of Vladimir Dubosarsky, Dmitry Tsvetkova and so forth) . One lose consciousness, dreaming fields Russian - the Tatar fights (Nikolay Polissky, Ice twilight of my native land ), others, absolutely feverous, are torn pokazno gusarstvovat (Konstantin Latyshev, Russian roulette ). The third, for a short while having come to the senses, try to sketch military - patriotic visions, but, alas, get off in words and are confused in images. It turns out sadly and simultaneously improbably (Konstantin Batynkov, the Native land - mother - the son - death ).
In chamber meet and the settled civil. But it is a little of them, as in any military hospital. Vysokolobye (Yury Lejderman, Vadim Zaharov, etc.) Probably, wishing otkosit from debt and service performance, look same moved down as well as them sopalatniki. It is a silent intellectual schizophrenia - whisper in din infantile and loud-voiced to which till now does not give rest Moscow burnt by a fire... (Vasily Florensky) also is ordered a way To a mooring . Probably, to Black Sea, Tatyana Antoshina meant.
Estestven a question: for whom curators have exposed this art - ginol, have sewed a shirt with long sleeves? Certainly, not for itself and the colleagues, the Moscow modern artists. Those have already recovered for a long time from congenital or acquired ideological viruses.
on an opening day distributed the original catalogue: a box from - under monpase Happy Holidays. On a cover - sweet Christmas bears, under a cover - ashes. At artists has already fused. But not at the zealous young growth which has imposed nowadays the western embassies. At an exit from a hall there was a couple pink-checked britogolovyh. here write down volunteers? probably, have accepted the Native land or death for a pure coin - for induction station.
