We must live, endure trials, work for others. "NOS" on an island of stability and sanity Automatic translate
KRASNOYARSK. As a result of the debate at the Kryakk fair recently completed, 10 authors were included in the short list of the NOS Prize.
The end of October - the beginning of November is the traditional time for the Krasnoyarsk Book Culture Fair. The 11th year of Kryak is an island of stability and sanity against the background of a total change of landmarks and frightening metamorphoses. Over the years, four governors have left their post in the region, its capital has become a millionaire city and the venue for the Winter Universiade 2019. The founder of KRYAKK Irina Prokhorova, sadly stating a change in the atmosphere in society, insists on the need to continue working in any conditions. “What to do, we must live,… patiently endure the trials, work for others” (A.P. Chekhov “Uncle Vanya”).
Last year’s events were dedicated to the dialogue of traditions and modernity. In 2017, they talked about the relationship between culture and science. At the grand opening, there were readings of the play by Lyubov Stryzhak with the participation of professional actors and scientists. Within the framework of KRYAK, a lecture was held by Alexei Semikhatov on the secrets of the Universe, journalist Vasily Vladimirsky and literary critic Maria Galina talked about the history and prospects of Soviet science fiction. Guests of the fair could attend lectures by Galina Yuzefovich on the new Nobel Prize winner Kazuo Isiguro, Alexandra Borisenko on the English school in literature, Grigory Kabatyansky on artificial intelligence, and the Dutch gerontologist Rudi Westendorp on aging without diseases.
Presentations of the international online project The Babel Review of Translations, new books by Cyril Kobrin, artist Sasha Galitsky, Norwegian writer Andreas Thiersnshaugen, and a collection of Swiss plays from the UFO publishing house took place. Performances by writers, multimedia exhibitions, film screenings, master classes and seminars were replaced by performances, installations, and round tables. At KRYAKK the premiere of the show of book reviews “Brodsky’s Cat” took place - an analogue of the intellectual conference TED, which promotes the dissemination of unique ideas and knowledge.
Young guests of KRYAKK could take part in quizzes, workshops, a contest for reading aloud, the game “Brainwalkers” and quests from the books of the Finnish writer Siri Kola and “History of the Old Apartment” by Alexandra Litvina and Anna Desnitskaya, to be on the set of a reality show. The Novosibirsk branch of the Goethe Institute presented a virtual reconstruction of the abstract office of El Lissitzky, in the space of which you can navigate using any gadget.
At the traditional debate, a shortlist of the NOS literary prize was created, created by the Prokhorov Charity Fund to encourage innovative literature. The name of the winner will be announced in January. Among the contenders for the main prize are the experimental “White Brush” Stanislav Snytko, the post-modern “Ivan Auslander” German Sadulayev, dedicated to the Russian intelligentsia.
