A biolaboratory with Alessandro Volpato, where participants test their own urine’s specifications and learn to analyze them. This is part of Mindaugas Gapševičius’ project “Self-repair”, which explores ways of identifying and fixing one’s body with the use of accessible information and consulting with specialists. The event is free, BYOU – Bring Your Own Urine.
“Autarkia” invites for two performances. One of them happened in two thousand and nine, the other is created now. Nine years – it’s not ten, is that a significant period of time? What has changed?
In the never shown before video the artists band “Kionigsberg” performs, punkish version of Lithuanian anthem, breaks guitar, throws plastic bottles at crowd. Huge audience is not really engaged in energetic show, but rather passively observes situation unfolding. Duration 4min.
Nine years later in the same location, a recent graduate from Vilnius Academy of Arts, Antanas Lučiūnas presents his latest performance. Duration 6 min.
Exhibition includes drawings by self taught artist under pseudonym “Vienturtis” (Onlyborn).
With this opening “Autarkia” launches new season. First message is simple – “Autarkia” is not an address or certain square meters, or even a program. Important – the exhibition will happen in new space (same location).
The event is part of the Vilnius Gallery Weekend.

Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival (2016)
10 June, Saturday, 19:00
10 June, Saturday, 14:00
About the film:
Donna Haraway’s groundbreaking work in science, technology, gender and trans-species relationships over the last four decades is marked by her deep commitments to feminism and environmentalism. Refusing to distinguish between humans and animals and machines, she proposed new ways of understanding our world that challenge normative structures and boundaries. Her approach to writing is equally distinct, breaking with prevailing trends in theory by embracing narrative techniques in painting a rebellious and hopeful future. Recognizing her singular talent for storytelling, Fabrizio Terranova spent a few weeks filming Haraway and her dog Cayenne in their Southern California home, exploring their personal universe as well as the longer development of Haraway’s views on kinship and planetary welfare. Animated by green screen projections, archival materials and fabulation, Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival is an appropriately eccentric response to a truly original thinker.
5’s mean that you are going through a positive change. The more times you see this number, the more this message is emphasized. Therefore, 555 is a triple number, so it’s 5 triply emphasized 555. When you add up the three 5’s, the sum is 15, which is 6 when you add the 1 to the 5.
May 5, Friday, a place in territory previously know as 555, means rap’sh (trep and lo-fi, slow-mo, hip-hop) evening, to mark the upcoming five news:

The Metaphysics of Beer
A Symposium of Humans and Micro-organisms
A humorous demonstration of Vytenis Burokas’ research and methodology that pulls ideas around philosophy, science, fermentation, rituals, inebriation, and food into a vortex. Rather than merely cite and quote his research, the artist stages an increasingly drunken discussion between himself and a crowd of philosophers, scientists, and theoreticians. In the play, Burokas ventriloquizes, and is inhabited by, a strange constellation of characters who have all dealt with the properties of the clinamen in some way, including the philosophers Aristotle, Epicurus, Lucretius, Julia Annas, and Michel Serres, the scientists Henri Poincaré and Ilya Prigogine, and the composers and theorists John Rahn and Michel Dellvile, amongst many other voices. (Post Brothers)
