The team of curators from the Center will visit Orest Bachmaha at his house on the outskirts of Lviv to conduct an interview. In the 1970s and 1980s this person was part of a huge army of amateurs, shaped in the former USSR. But he belonged to a special circle of amateurs, such as media amateurs, who produced radios and recording machines, and worked on the margin between amateur film and video art. Bachmaha produced several films about his garden, where he ”gazed“ at nature through the lenses of his amateur camera. One of these films we will show to the audience in an edited format – after being digitized it received music timbres. The screening is followed by live discussion and online QA session.
