In traditional societies, generations would come and go much faster than habitat would change. Catastrophes changed landscapes, be it natural or human in origin - from volcano eruption to migration to asteroid to cultivation. In contemporary times, variety is introduced quickly into landscapes by prosperity or adversity. Over the last century, industrialization, urbanization, revolution, wars, construction and reconstruction – each lead to a generation living under conditions different than previous ones. The exhibit "CAPITAL OF NOWHERE" is about life in a changing landscape during the Information Age… Among 13 exhibited artworks personalizing effects of industrialization, urbanization, revolution, wars, construction and reconstruction are Alexandra Dementieva's interactive "Breathless" translating exhalation digitally into light and words, Vitaly Pushnitsky's hybrid painting-projection "Waiting" juxtaposing the transpiring of a sunrise over the existence of archaic columns, Elena Gubanova and Ivan Govorkov's sculptural “Generations” physically uniting decades of doors in solidarity; performances by collective Mylo screened on Soviet era soap. Contributions by CYLAND CoFounders include Anna Frants' new media installation "Cloud that Smells Blue" which inverts the relationship between oneself to the world and Marina Koldobskaya's ideal city painted on found fragments of old furniture.

Thema: CYBERFEST, the annual exposition of technology-based artwork of international artists, comes to Russia for a fourth year. Housed previously in Peter and Paul Fortress (2007) and The Hermitage Museum (2008, 2009) among other local venues, CYBERFEST 2010 returns to St Petersburg November 19th to 26th, 2010. CYBERFEST Co-Founders Anna Frants (of St Petersburg Arts Project) and Marina Koldobskaya (of National Center for Contemporary Art) take the curatorial helm again this year, joined by Sofia Kudrjavtseva and Sergej Teterin. The exhibition and programming this November will continue to offer a platform for the energy, experimentation, collaboration and interactive projects for which CYBERFEST has already become well known. A vastly universal and timely theme uniting all - this year's curatorial focus explores society's day-to-day life and routine practices in a growing technologically-driven culture. An event that gains more attention exponentially every year, CYBERFEST has garnered a strong momentum in Eastern Europe. Internationally, word continues to spread of this event's prowess in bringing established and emerging New Media artists from across the globe to share work and progress ideas together. CYBERFEST 2010 is poised to introduce its next group of diverse New Media thinkers to each other, to a widening audience, and to a city that continues its long history of being a home to artists and Art. This year's full listings of participants, special performances, openings, and venues will be released in early October. A unique, organic model for initiating cultural exchange and dialogue from artist-to-artist and art-to-audience, CYBERFEST is just one of the ways that CYLAND (the nonprofit organizing and presenting the event) fulfills their mission to support New Media. In addition to administering CYBERFEST, CYLAND also facilitates a Media Lab Residency Program and operates Russia's largest digital film archive - which is available online to the public for free.

Künstler: Artists: Installations by Kathleen Vance, Mark Andreas, and Ryan Wolfe Curated by: Alexandra Rockelmann (galerieOPEN) and Leah Stuhltrager (Dam, Stuhltrager)
Thema: From across the globe, three installation artists converge in Berlin. Each bringing their uniquely innovative style, Kathleen Vance, Mark Andreas, and Ryan Wolfe inaugurate the official foundation of RSProjects with new work that captures the spirit of Public Art: using today’s most inspiring resources to challenge new audiences and answer our most urgent questions – through the transformative and universal language of art. In tandem with a solo exhibition at galerieOPEN, Kathleen Vance reanimates fallen branches and limbs into interwoven, entangled binding systems in her large-scale installation “Boundsticks,” the product of her term as RSP artist-in-residence. As part of this Public Artwork, Vance also hosted this season’s RSP Community Outreach event, where children from the Kreuzberg neighborhood worked with Vance to create a large mural, mapping the quantifiable data derived from the artist's collection of sticks in the Grunewald forest. Bringing his acclaimed “Reactive Sculpture” series to Germany, Mark Andreas choreographs water to serve as an autocatalysis for a spontaneous performance by his latest work in the series. Like his past sculpture “Seed Spreader,” Andreas’ work involves blunt, powerful movements by natural forces, intermingling massive contraptions with minute changes in environment to create a dynamically constructed organism. After exhibiting at GOGOLFEST in Kiev, Ukraine alongside a plethora of multidisciplinary art giants, Ryan Wolfe culminates his 6-month artist residency in Berlin with “Study for a Perfect Storm”—the latest piece of a series that blurs the parameters of technological virtual experience with reality. In this participatory video installation, the viewer's presence triggers a storm, which gains intensity the longer the onlooker wills it by remaining watching.
