Six strangers gathered at the entrance of the Academy of Music in Dresden. Gradually, their places are taken by others, however, the substance of the group remains unchanged.
“Time either does not exist at all or barely exists”. But it seems that we don't have time now to think about time anymore. Stop. This thought itself is about time, and we have denoted it by the word Now. How long does it take to read it in such a way that Now matches its meaning?
Aliens in Prague
In the act of subjectivation, artistic practice and political action meet each other. Politics is realized as crystallization, at the basis of which we assume two elements: the place, blank space that anyone may take — on the one hand, and the subject himself, acquiring that subjectivity as a result of the performative act. In the core, we have an unoccupied structure of six places, which appear to be the room for such performativity.

Poverty and Glory
Medium is the electronic version of the Pythagorean monochord. It is extremely simple — a tree branch, two stones, two nails, steel string, and a contact microphone. It is made anew every time, immediately prior to the Aliens' performance. It is the perfect tool for installing sound impregnated with overtones. The Medium and the sound from it constitute a singular art object, the installation of which in space takes place using special performative practice.
All personal possession of the artists were bounded together and suspended on the six strings as a weight for the tension. The strings were the drivers for the processual performing of the sounds collected and selected by the artists, especially for the event. Six suspended objects formed the playground for performative procedure lasted 6 hours until the installation got broken.

Sound performance, viewed from the perspective of a contemporary art spectator unexpectedly turns out to be a provider of raw musicality. We call it (Music) in brackets.
We use your ears and eyes
Video that we recorded in the Moscow flat, in the days when we were passionate about an investigation on Medium.
During the Booty Art (Beute Kunst) exhibition, Rabota tried to make the time visible, and these risky experiments led to death so many objects as artists were able to find at the streets of Karlsruhe. Booty Art (Beute Kunst) – the term invented especially for the exhibition at the UND#9 Festival in Karlsruhe, Germany. Thrown away student paintings, plates, exercise bike and two antic chairs from Markus Lupertz waste were found on the streets of Karlsruhe, modified, overpainted and then sold during the exhibition.
