TOTART: Natalia Abalakova & Anatoly Zhigalov
have been realizing their Project:
"Exploration into the Essence of Art as applied to Life and Art" (TOTART) since the end of 1970-s.
The main goal of this Project it trying to understand art, criticize Art by means of Art itself as well as to investigate the borders dividing Life and Art and possibility and limites of their transgression.
That is why understanding Politics as orientation and self-determination (of an artist) in human society is of course in the circle of interests of TOTART.
And this position is always revolutionary and oriented against stagnation and reactionary character of human consciousness and opressive nature of any Power.
At the same time political views of the artist are by no means determined by his/her being engaged in this or that political party, but by all his/her creative work as well as each creative reaction on the challenges of Time.
Here we can agree with Jean-Luc Godard: " Not to make political Art, but to make Art politically", and to transform feministic slogan: "Art is politics ".
