The ceremony of awarding the winners of the award were presented in the format of an immersive session. If in 2017, the ceremony was held in the Moscow planetarium without leading, using full-dome graphics and robots, this year’s event is combining contemporary art and theatre in the genre evolving postdramatic performance. In 2018 the ceremony was held at the Theatre of Nations, inside of which visitors were offered “open theatre inside, in his head – that is where new ideas are born, where and originate any innovation.” The theme of the event was the time and appeal to my own experience and memory.

The ceremony was attended by artists, curators, critics, collectors and culture, as well as stars of show business: Dmitry Malikov, Artem Korolev, Polina Askeri, Pavel Artemyev, Ilya Bachurin and many others.
