ART OF TORTURES AND EXECUTIONS - ART AGAINST TORTURES AND EXECUTIONS

National Center for Contemporary Art

Dear collegues!

The Kaliningrad Branch of the National Center for Contemporary Art invites you to take part in the Open Social Network Art Project “ART OF TORTURES AND EXECUTIONS – ART AGAINST TORTURES AND EXECUTIONS”. The Kaliningrad Branch of the National Center for Contemporary Art was established by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation in December, 1997 as museum and exhibition, as well as a scientific-research state organisation realising projects and programs within contemporary arts in western Russias enclave and outside its borders.

The main reason for a realisation of the project is fact, that in Russia the mortal execution is stipulated by the Criminal Code of Russian Federation as a maximum capital punishment. And only in connection with an entrance of Russian Federation to Council of Europe the President B. Yeltsin has signed the moratorium about temporary cancellation of a capital punishment in Russia. Moreover, the mortal execution as a maximum capital punishment is topical on a boundary of centuries for the large number of countries (USA, China, Chile, Cuba, Algeria, Japan, Yugoslavia, Guatemala, Morocco, Kyrgyzstan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Congo, Iran, Iraq, Tunis, Thailand, Turkmenistan, India, Egypt and etc.), despite of perfection of the law acts, technical progress, freedom of the press, creeds and word of expression.
