Even the vanguard minds of the Institute take the opening of Andrey Bartenev’s School in IGUMO as a breakthrough into another dimension. “ The Features to the Portrait» by A. Bartenev are eccentric: the king of shocking behavior who is able to «reconcile contraries», to live and to create «on the verge», cutting off the trail of stereotyped guesswork. He is an outstanding person in art-performance, a representative of the «new evolution» round. He is recognized in America and in Norway, where he lectures his own course to the students of the oldest state University.
He is an odious person, but undoubtedly shows an encyclopedic knowledge. He is talented, capable of expressing himself in artistic projects in the most unexpected manner, emphatically denying all the stereotypes, except the logic of life. He likes freedom of thought, often almost fantastic. He is real godsend to the Universities of Russia. However, his potential has not been fully realized.
Though, the information about Andrey Bartenev’s classes is always significant. For example, in the latest news we talked about SKOLKOVO School of Management.
SKOLKOVO is a brand of Russia. But IGUMO has also been included into the number of the high rating Moscow Universities. Today the decision about the opening of the new training areas in IGUMO has reached its crucial stage. The recruitment to the Department of Variety Show Directing at Andrey Bartenev’s school will be announced in May, 2012.
Versatile creative work is an important artistic component of this specialty. Variety Show Directing demands the widest spectrum of skills, among them ability to properly present oneself to the audience and to imagine the picture before its creation. Therefore the decision to make the Department of Design of IGUMO a place of dislocation of Andrey Bartenev’s school looks mature. Of course, several academic disciplines will be shared with the «colleagues» from IGUMO Drama Department.
We are sure, that this department will be very popular. There is no other option. Creative work … makes wonders.05.04.2012
