Foundation in social networks:

#stayhome with the Foundation. Lera Lerner. Pestilence, magic, tactility over Wi-Fi

3 May 2020

7 May at 6 pm Anastasya Kizilova and Lera Lerner will welcome you on the air – in the show Good Evening, Mr. Orwell!

Lera Lerner suggests discussing the behavior of urban communication conductors in isolation. Which forms does the art of interaction take in the online space? What is carried out now? How and for whom is it carried out?
In the past life Lera Lerner produced pestilence, which did not increase social distance but, vice versa, reduced it. Now she suggests talking about the ethics and the (im)possibilities of the project, aiming at sharing the sense of finiteness and fragility with another person, at making common cause with and supporting one another during the period of defocusing. The practice of psychosomatic conversation and hidden addition to reality (being invented now) aims at shattering the sense of dissolution of the situation around us and finding the path of return to oneself.
