Kolya and his family live an ordinary life in a seaside town by the Barents Sea in Russia. Kolya has a nice house and a repair shop on the small piece of land he owns. When the corrupt mayor of the town expresses his intentions to confiscate his land and demolish everything on it, Kolya invites a friend, who is a lawyer from Moscow, to his home. As the war that the pair set off against the fraudulent mayor and the system wages on, new layers of the corrupt system reveal themselves and everything becomes more troubling and intense. One of the critical directors of contemporary Russian cinema, Andrey Zvyagintsev’s Leviathan was nominated for an Oscar in the category of “Best Foreign Language Film.”

Good News from the Skies

Good News from the Skies

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
