Lecture Highlights
Find out why nudity is the essence of art and how the approach to a body image helps us understand ourselves;
Analize the relevance of the ancient сanon in the XX century on the examples of Schiele's and Modigliani's oeuvre;
Meet with pure sensuality without intermediaries in performances of Marina Abramovich and Yves Klein;
Explore why Marilyn Monroe is just a sexualized image in Warhol's works;
Since the days of Ancient Greece and Rome, we have seen perfect nudes of men and women encased in marble. This baton was taken up by the Renaissance, to pass it on to the art of the 18-19th centuries.

Art which created a world of higher, ideal objects ended with the advent of the 20th century, when all the phenomena of the surrounding world began to be questioned, and most of all – art and its norms.

Nowadays diverse, bright, and provocative reality is in focus.

What is now acceptable in art? Are there any censored topics left? How has artists' attitude to love changed? Why do statements of contemporary artists about body and its life seem so scandalous to us? We will talk about all that at our lecture.
Learn how social norms affect art and its development.

Who is the lecturer?
My major interest is the art of the XX century. I am sure there are no complicated themes or things, but there are lots of wrong explanations. I will not overload you with some odd historical information, but I will teach you how to interpret different artworks by yourself
