The V–A–C Foundation launched its major art venue with Geometry of Now, a festival of live sound and site-specific interventions in the space of Moscow's former power station, GES-2. Curated by Mark Fell, the project featured a series of installations reclaiming the raw structures within GES-2, an interdisciplinary lecture and workshop programme developed around topics in sound art studies and performances that reconfigure its architectural space. The festival's bi-lingual branding utilised minimal typography set against the building's stark abandoned interiors, often recalling scenes from Tarkovsky's film, Stalker. A website was designed to accompany the festival and two books – one in English and one in Russian – documenting the project and the architecture of GES-2 were published in 2021.
