Nikolay Onischenko’s new work is featured at All-Russian Decorative Art Museum, Moscow

Nikolay Onischenko’s new body of work “The Institute for Development of Time” is featured at a recently opened group exhibition “15 Minute Break” at All-Russian Decorative Art Museum in Moscow. The work presents a documented mystification of some non-existing Institute for Development of Time (IDT), established in 1973 to do research and projects with a focus on optimisation of work.

The installation includes fiction documents and materials on a new experiment established by IDT: “The mechanics of time is very simple, but it is extremely difficult to overcome the existing perception of time as something eternal and incomprehensible. This is a tall order that each of us has to step up to. TEMPUS 2 is an experimental project designed to help address these challenges. Starting from 2024, employees of several Russian businesses and organizations will volunteer to transition to 26-hour days, thus boosting their productivity and quality
of life.”
