The exhibition takes us back to this world with a focus on everyday life, especially food and drink.

More: Nikolai Ridny's artistic practice uses various media such as photography, cinema, installation and text, historical research methods and investigation of current political events. Ridny, referring to the representation of violence without its reproduction, opposes sensational visualization and aestheticization of cruelty with a distant critical approach.
Broadcasting images of violence has always been at the center of the news business and the media. However, with the advent of 1990/XNUMX cable TV news in the XNUMXs, and the introduction of social media and live broadcasts into our lives, global audiences are constantly confronted with many images of violence from both domestic and international conflicts. While the commercialization of news forces journalists to edit news videos to resemble action movies, the normalcy of human existence has been cut out to keep audiences enthralled by the more salable visuals.
