On February 26, Fabrika will host a curatorial tour of the exhibition "TV Trampoline: From Children's Television to Contemporary Art and Literature." The tour will be led by curator and artist Andjeas Eijksson and curator, art theorist, cultural advisor to Sweden in Russia Maria Lind.
Also, within the framework of the exhibition "TV Trampoline: From Children's Television to Contemporary Art and Literature", there will be a discussion with contemporary artists and curators about children's culture and television. The discussion will focus on the artistic and literary works at the exhibition. Where are they taking us? And what do they do as a collective of works of art? Thus, the discussion provides an opportunity to attract attention and discuss the possibilities of art and curation.

Can children's television programs be considered part of the cultural heritage? For Sweden, certainly, if we talk about two decades from 1965 to 1985. The exhibition TV Springboard: From Children's Television to Contemporary Art and Literature explores this heritage through the work of eleven of Sweden's most famous and important contemporary artists and writers. They, like children's TV shows, bring together stories and experiences from different parts of the world and areas of life, draw attention to this part of the heritage and make it more difficult.
Topics that the authors of the project work with: the power of myth, the work of memory, non-verbal communication, censorship, the persistence of culture, the duality of cute and charming.
Artists and writers: Petra Bauer, Ida Böriel and Lou Hillarp, Andjeas Eijksson, Annika Eriksson, Jennifer Hayashida, Salad Hiloule, Balsam Karam, Runo Lagomarsino, Behzad Khosravi Nuri, Katarina Pirak Sikku, Olivia Plender.
Address: Perevedenodskiy pereulok 18, Olivie
