The exhibition presents 11 projects of foreign and Russian artists who, in collaboration with scientists and engineers, are looking for ways to learn to recognize themselves as part of hybrid communities, communicate in a new way, overcome interspecific boundaries and think non-anthropocentrically.

One of the subsections of the exposition is the scientific and artistic experiment "Measuring the magic of the eye" Marina Abramovichbased on her famous performance "In the presence of the artist", tests the hypothesis that eye-to-eye gaze triggers brain synchronization. Viewers will be able to visit the site of the participants in the experiment and try themselves in non-verbal communication using glances.
