They are mediators contributing for the establishment of meaningful relationship between the world of contemporary art and the wider non-professional public. In their research and live lectures there’s a specific stress on revealing steady links between the past and the present, the tradition and the contemporary art practices – proving that everything is interconnected. “DNA in Art” is how they refer to their approach.
