October Project attempts to relate to and re-narrate moments from the recent history of contemporary art in Ukraine. Within a minimal staged setting we discuss a few situations and scenes from this history in a public performance structured by means of narration and commentary. Though these situations - from major events to personal anecdotes - are first and foremost singular occurrences, they contain in a condensed form questions and conflicts that may be paradigmatic for the processes of contemporary art. An important element to appropriate, unfold and re-narrate these scenes consists in the negotiations amongst ›the participants themselves, diverging opinions, doubts,›misunderstandings and questions.
October Project is a one-time constellation in which individual artists and theorists work together, bringing in experiences from - while at the same time trying out other working forms than in - previous and parallel collaborative group practices, including R.E.P. group (Revolutionary Experimental Space), TanzLaboratorium and the former CCCK (Center for Context and Communication Kyiv).
Viktor Misiano is a curator and theorist based in Moscow and Italy. He is the founder and editor-in-chief of Moscow Art Magazine and current Chairman of the International Manifesta Foundation. Most recently he curated "Impossible Community" at MMoMA (Moscow Museum of Modern Art).
