The Russian collective Chto Delat is a self-organized platform for cultural activities aimed at politicizing the production of knowledge.
“When We Thought We Had All the Answers, Life Changed the Questions” looks into the wide range of media comprising their artistic production, while insisting on the questions shaping their practice: all variations on the questions that gives the group its name What Is To Be Done?.
For their first exhibition in Mexico, Chto Delat present their most recent production including a new work developed from their interaction with the Zapatistas in Chiapas. The works engage the recent past, the present and also possible futures with mise en scénes that generate aesthetic experiments to test the possibilities of art, as a reality and dimension of its own, in extreme conditions.
