If you go to Kyshtym on July 18, you can visit a lecture by Anastasia Sosnovskaya, a popularizer of art and author of the channel @art.likbez. Anastasia will talk about the art as a system of symbols and plots, the decryption of which may lead to an answer to a question that has been haunting many people “What did the author want to say?” You can try this decryption method on a trip by studying a new sculpture by Ivan Gorshkov in the bed of the Krystymka river.
