Lecture programme of Media Forum-2013 is not only an opportunity to learn about the development of mocumentary as an active artistic strategy, but also direct collaboration with leading contemporary artists who create the alternate reality of pseudo documentary. Nine of the project’s participants, — Omer Fast, Monica Studer and Christoph van den Berg, Milica Tomić, Nonny de la Peña and Peggy Weil, “Janez Jansa”, Radoslaw Pater — will come to Moscow to meet the audience in person and give practical advice to young artists.
