Most issues of the newspaper Chto delat have either sparked artistic collaborations, or provide commentary on art projects carried out by members of the workgroup.
Since 2003, this has led to an ongoing collaboration between Nikolai Oleinikov, Tsaplya, Dmitry Vilensky, Gluklya, and Kirill Shuvalov, as well as other artists from both Russia and abroad, so that Chto delat has become a creative platform where collaborations are not just hypothesized in editorial or curatorial practice, but become a matter of artistic reflection in works that are genuinely collaborative. At the same time, all of these artistic efforts attempt to reconnect to the discursivity of the newspaper, which often functions as a supplement or intervention in the artistic venues.
This section will be expanding constantly with extensive material documenting the artistic work of Chto delat. For now, it consist of comprehensive image material and project descriptions, as well as "related texts" for their contextualization. We soon hope to add YouTube videos to supply visitors with a more accurate, integral artistic experience of these projects.
Stay tuned for updates!
