According to interpretations of the ancient Mayan calendar December 21, 2012 has been declared as yet another apocalypse day. According to Michelangelo Pistoletto this date can really take on a symbolic meaning, as it actually corresponds to a culmination point in the history of humanity.

Pistoletto offers to celebrate the First Worldwide Day of Rebirth. Anyone can participate with their personal or collective projects and initiatives as long as they appeal to the idea of the responsible transformation of society, declared in his “Third Paradise” conception. Many artists, musicians, actors and performers responded to the call of Pistoletto. In different museums, centers and in the Internet will be organized actions, conferences and exhibitions on this day.

NCCA Moscow will plan various events: a sound installation by Nikolay Onischenko, who will work on the sound and on a projection of the Third Paradise over the execution of a piece by Franz Schubert, an installation by Yana Simonschenko created during a live performance by Yuriy Vetrov and Aliya Berdigalieva, the projection of a video realized with the children in Andrey Suzdalev’s studio in the NCCA and an action by Sergey Katran which will invite people to place their mobile phones in the shape of the new sign of infinite in an open space.
