Dramatic and Mild, 7 min
What do people look at and what meanings do they make when a Kandinsky is on show in a power station guarded by a muscleman?

A short essay on the importance of art which covers how visitors and security guards act and think while enclosed in a small room with the painting "Dramatic and Mild" by Vasiliy Kandinsky.

It is part of the festival "Geometry of Now" which took place in the former Power Station GES-2 in the center of Moscow that is soon to be transformed into a new cultural space in the capital.
