Session III of the project "The Human Condition" is realized with the support of The Goethe-Institut, Italian Institute of culture in Moscow and Embassy of the Republic of Lithuania in the Russian Federation.
The project "Human Condition" was launched in November 2015 by the National Centre for Contemporary Art (NCCA), Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA) and Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center.
Artistic director of the project Viktor Misiano - is one of the most authoritative Russian experts in the field of contemporary arts, curator, art theorist.
The title of this project programmatically refers to the namesake book by Hannah Arendt, whose philosophical thought tried to answer the key question of the past century - how to be and stay Human in the face of the drama of History. The idea of this project comes out of the assumption that the anthropological problematic once again draws close attention or, in other words, the Human today once again becomes one of the central cultural issues. One of the explanations for this "anthropological turn" can be the experience of high completeness of contemporary reality, so common to today's world view, and its irreducibility to simple definitions and exhaustive interpretations.
Thus the Human - his direct and present experience in the face of the inconceivable world - becomes the initial and the final point of the actual picture of the world. The project combines research, exhibition and discussion formats. Exhibitions implemented in the framework of he project will be the starting points for discussion and analysis. They will be accompanied by workshops, video screenings, lectures, workshops, poetry readings, performative action and so forth. Among the participants of the project "The Human Condition" - representatives from more than 50 countries of Western and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, Asia, North and South America. Project consist of seven sessions. The first session - "Limits of the Human" - took place in NCCA from November 2015 till January 2016, the second - "Human and the Others" - in MMOMA from November 2016 till January 2017. This booklet accompanies the third session of the project - "Time and Senses".
