On 30th of December, they will start at 12.30 and at 21.00 with the experimental feature "The Judge" by Macedonian artist Zaneta Vangeli. The exhibition of photography will be opened until 28.01.2007.

All selected works are focused on the problem which as a concept (and a question) of this project has been posed: The artist’s attitude is the most authentic expression of what is going on in the society. In a world where the individual is rejected because of the power of any kind and in a world in which all spheres of interest are focused on globalization, the power of the artist could be the strongest weapon against it. Can the artist be identified through his (her) own act of creating (as the most important one) considering the fact that the new visions and attitudes are changing the image of the future world?

Temporary Cities
September 22 – November 30, 2006
Ministry of Culture and Mass Media of the Russian Federation
Federal Agency for Culture and Cinematography
National Centre for Contemporary Arts (NCCA)
Moscow, Russia

The possible emergence of the temporary cities in the future will be based on the aesthetics of speed & nomadism, flexibility & reconfigurability. The trans-architecture of such amazing cities is an intimate fusion of space with light, sound, colors and virtual reality focused on conceptualism, minimalism, happening, irony&urban phantasy. Such a ”Citta Intermedia” becomes a net where people are free to express their temporary trans-culture, creativity&identity, a place where even time is a creativity matrix. But the loss of the center, horizon, natural, normal, even human, will contribute to a diminution of the role of the ego&history. A culture dominated by temporary cities will be a post-historical and post-literary culture. (Constantin Severin)

The National Centre for Contemporary Arts (NCCA) is a museum, exhibition and research organization which aims its efforts at the development of contemporary Russian art within the context of the global art process, at the creation and implementation of programs and projects in the sphere of contemporary art, architecture and design both in this country, and beyond its borders.

The National Centre for Contemporary Arts was created in Moscow in 1992, at the moment when contemporary art was only acquiring the basis for its normal existence and development in Russia. The Centre provided an important and crucial structure consolidating the activities of masters of contemporary art, stimulating their creative efforts. The activity of NCCA has been essential in the processes of the reorganization of the artistic life in Russia during the 1990s. It was important both for Moscow, where the Centre was based then, and for many regions of the country where NCCA efforts initiated the implementation of art projects in the sphere of contemporary art triggering the processes of its development there.

Today, when the efforts of the previous years are bringing fruit, the National Centre for Contemporary Arts continues its active work aimed at the development and popularization of the Russian contemporary art and its integration in the global art context. At present NCCA is a network institution with its branches in major cultural centres of Russia, such as St. Petersburg, Nizhnii Novgorod, Yekaterinburg, Kaliningrad, Vladikavkaz and Tomsk.
