Artistic couple Artur Magrot and Kateřina Szymanski will present a social event on the theme of the construction of a contemporary ritual.

The core of the ritual itself is the exact repetition of good practices – in this case the promotional event systematics.

Rituals are not subject to purposeful rationality (they have no specific intent and goal), but they can carry significant functions. If the subject of a promotional event is taken away, it is a ritual what remains.

7 selected participants of the promo-ceremony in auto-dimming glass helmet watches a series of flashes created by different sources in precise dynamics.

The spectacle arises controlled by automatically censoring welding helmets.

In the mask, we do not see the whole reality but we are surrounded by the ghosts of the situation – the foggy consistency of the course of events.
