My name is Alena Grigorash and I am an art historian and artist based in Moscow and Milan. My passion is the contemporary art in context of art history and creativity as well as cross cultural communications. I work at the university as a associate professor, make public lectures and online webinars about design, fashion and contemporary art.I have a Russian book about the Darmstadt artists' colony in Germany. I specialize on the idea of Gesamtkunstwerk from the art nouveau experiments to the participatory practices nowadays. As an artist I deal with the connection of body, text and silence.
