    From 15th to 21th of May 2015 the debut of Russian Contemporary Art Week (RCAW) took place in Berlin. Three different locations served as the setting for an creative encounter across cultural boundaries, in which a large variety of Russian-born artists from Berlin introduced their work to an European context. The mayor venue for the event was the Ballery Gallery in Schöneberg, where two exhibitions featuring altogether six different artistic positions were presented. In the second venue – the LemoArt Gallery in Prenzlauer Berg – the spotlight was put on a multifaceted mix of artists, reaching from Russian pulsating underground scene to yet undiscovered talents, from which all showed a highly unique approach to contemporary art. In addition, a special focus have also been placed on the educational aspect of art. Therefore, Igor Zaidel, Zoula Fürst and Maxim Krioukov held several workshops, allowing interesting views of different styles and techniques as well as sharing the secrets of their individual creative approach. The third venue, PankeCulture in Wedding, served as the stage for an inspirational mixed media project "United Untitled", which was developed in cooperation with the students of UdK Berlin. RCAW was inaugurated on the 15th of May 2015 at the Ballery Gallery with a thought-provoking performance by artist Natalia Korotyaeva. Together with the performance, an exhibition featuring the artists Vera Kochubey, Katerina Belkina and Igor Skaletsky, was opened in the first week of RCAW. The position, represented by Igor Skaletsky - mirrored the ongoing fascination of the artist for historical art and contemporary culture identity. His surreal appearing collages originated from a heterogeneous pool of material, containing popular items of our day-to-day world as well as components of historical paintings. The second participating artist, Katerina Belkina, showed her 'Light and Heavy' seria, in which she captured the paradox between the emancipated, energetic woman and her environment: the desolate atmosphere of the average Russian city. The luminious and powerful paintings of the third artist Vera Kochubey, however, could be traced back to a profound exploration of philosophical and identical questions, composing the quintessence of her oeuvre, which is a personal vision of positive existentialism and sublime individualism. Igor Skaletsky’s piece 'Metaldetector' was sold soon after the opening, which marked the official opening of the RCAW market. Another highlight of the RCAW was the live painting performance 'Live and Love' at the Ballery Gallery by visual artist Vera Kochubey, who presented her new 'Rebirth' photo project. In her live painting performance at the Ballery Gallery, she manifested basic rules of life as simple as they are, easy to be forgotten, but still containing the Truth. The two artists which were presented alongside with the performance in the second exhibition were Igor Zaidel and Anna Grau. The finissage of RCAW took place on the 1st of June 2015. All visitors were invited to indulge in a delicious culinary odyssey through the Russian cuisine, literally tasting pieces of art in all variations. About RCAW: The basic idea of the project was to establish a new format of art show, which inducts young, Contemporary artists from Russia in to the European context. There's a wide-spread community of Contemporary Russian artists in Europe. RCAW aims to create a platform for these people, which would serve both as an introduction to the European market as well as a an open space, in which the artists can develop their ideas without being chained to any political or ideological context. At the same time, the RCAW seeks to reflect the diversity and the immense potential of the Contemporary Russian Art scene in Europe. For this purpose, RCAW represents a great variety of contemporary positions, including already internationally renowned artists as well as yet undiscovered talents. rcaw.de facebook.com/rcawberlin

          (ex-vhs, sorry for poor quality) BBC News special looking at the resurgence of photographers and artists in Russia and an exhibition held in London. As with all my videos I saw that my job was to work closely with the Producer mutually selecting the pictures and audio/music, treating them if necessary and deciding the best place for them to go. Certainly the ones that have a bit of humour added were often done at my suggestion. I was also able to make suggestions to the script. It is very much a team effort.
