Project participants

  • Art Association for the Rhineland and Westphalia
  • Moscow Museum of Modern Art
  • Municipal Gallery Arsenal


Over the course of 2018, D’EST will form a contemporary video art platform that maps female* and collective positions reflecting the post-socialist transformation along focus topics. D’EST opens up artistic approaches to post-geographic, horizontal and gender critical historiographies online and across different art institutions. Between June and November 2018, the platform will launch six different screening chapters online shaped by fifteen curators containing forty-five video works, experimental, and documentary films.
