In Berlin opened an exhibition of Russian artists with disabilities

In the framework of the international festival “Russian seasons” in Berlin opened the exhibition “Inalienable.” It is available to visitors on 31 December in the Russian house of science and culture. The exhibition presents paintings of contemporary Russian artists working in the genre of naive art. The authors of the paintings – people with disabilities, including those living in psychoneurological boarding schools.

“Inalienable” is the first inclusive art project presented by Russia abroad at the festival, which is patronized by the government.

the Exhibition is organized by the Fund assisting the promotion of socially significant projects “Inalienable” and Fund “Inoculum — Social platform Fund Recongress” with the support of the Council under the government of the Russian Federation on issues of guardianship in the social sphere.

“Art project “Inalienable” is intended to open up the world to the public the names of the most talented Russian artists of the so-called the direction of outsider art or art brut, which is now experiencing a real boom in the West. Unfortunately, modern writers from Russia, there is little known abroad”, — said the curator of the project, the founder of the “Inalienable” Stanislav Petrov.

According to him, the project has not only cultural, but also social mission – to create conditions for creative self-realization of talented people with disabilities and to combat stereotypes of society.

“We are convinced that projects like ours have never been more relevant from the point of view of the formation of the international image of Russia as a modern social welfare state, which is seriously concerned about the development of their human capital. Not every country can boast that equally provides an international platform as international celebrities like Valery Gergiev, and unknown artists with disabilities. It’s a lot govor the seriousness of the state’s attitude to the theme of social inclusion”, — said the Director of the Fund “Inalienable” Tatiana Vinogradova.

Previously, the art project “Inalienable” was supported by Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova, who personally opened the exhibition at the Russian investment forum in Sochi, Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets, which is disposed to include in the exhibition program of the international festival “Russian seasons” in Germany.

in Addition to exhibitions, within the framework of the art project “Inalienable” in different regions of Russia are created creative workshops for people with disabilities. In addition, the authors of the project hope to open the first centre for inclusive arts, which would become a resource platform for these art workshops across the country.
