Playground of young art START. Special project WINZAVOD
The main goal of project START is supporting and promotion of young Russian artists. Today any person,who is living outside of Moscow or St. Petersburg, is automatically provided behind the complex machinery of modern art – commercial and non – profit institutions, curators and critics, biennials and museums, but most importantly is aindifferent public.
The uniqueness of the project START is that it is focused on active work with regions. Inviting the authors to participate in the project, we want not only to discover new phenomena in art, but also to teach young people, in whatever remote corners of our vast country they live, to navigate in the vast world of contemporary art, to understand how this world works.

We believe in the necessity of not only support, but also all sorts of stimulating youth initiatives across the country. Actively involving the regions in the project START, we not only give artists the opportunity to work beyond the framework and boundaries, but also create for them a new audience.

We undertake to prove, that artistic freedom does not mean uselessness. START at the same time humanitarian solves two tasks: firstly, is the revival of the artistic process in Russia’s regions, and secondly, young artists gain the practical skills of public presentation of their art is a professional international audience.
