Central House of Artists
21 september 2011 — 26 september 2011

Opening: 20.09.2011

Organizer: Annouchka Brochet

Artists: Annouchka Brochet in cooperation with the students of School #109

Today each one can edit information on his hero in WIKIPEDIA. The heroes of the world culture are granted with inaccurate information that, maybe, better define them and their activities in a contemporary context.

The installation is an Internet site and a portrait gallery of school heroes linked with arrows and stained with graffiti done by the students. Between the portraits, black arrows indicate the relationship between the characters, but not related to the traditional school program but on anecdotes from their personal lives (as Daniil Kharms would do).

The project evolves with a web-site (www.wikiantipedia.ru).
On the computer screen heroes of the world culture, and the public attending the performance can assign relationship between two or more characters.
When the selection is completed, the computer program inserts new information, new links, connecting characters in a chain and establishing a new mythology that future students will take for granted.
