Aesthetics of hybrid surfaces
The purpose of the laboratory's research is to analyze the artist's vision and the viewer's perception in the field of relationships that determine the understanding of various forms of art.

Sometimes works of contemporary art are so complex and incomprehensible that aesthetics remains perhaps the only instrument for perception for the viewer.

"22" - artists, curators and critics, in the unity of their opposites, embody meanings through contemporary art.
"22" is an open independent area for experiments and meetings.
