"A work of Art was the result of a unique and irreplaceable experience, containing a revelation obtained through individual effort and artistic genius, and endowed with a meaning peculiar only to it" Mykhailo Koltsov
Today we began with the Post Truth collective journey, a "hybrid experimental program" designed by Seila, where participants will get immersed in the topic of Post Truth from different perspectives, learning from local and international researchers as well as from an experiential and experimental collective approach.
This first day we began from the introduction of the topic "post truth' to spark some questions as well as focusing on ethical principles for our "temporary community" from where to reflect and create together.
We were very grateful to have two special visitor speakers. Mykhailo Koltsov, Ukrainian philosopher, who gave a talk about a philosophical perspective of Art in the post truth reality. Also, the artist and psychologist Bogdan Bondarchuk who presented an experimental video talk exploring the psychological reflection on the nature of truth.
Discussions began, sparking more questions and ideas, unravelling the complexities of how post truth era is present in the contemporary societies across borders and cultures.
