The open lecture within our project "The Earth Is Flat – How to Read Media?" by multimedia producer and documentary film maker Sergey Karpov "Media is a Verb" will take place at the FUTURO gallery of modern art in Nizhny Novgorod on February 28.

Multimedia producer and documentary film maker Sergei Karpov will talk about how the whole world around us turns into media, as well as how empathy and communication save this world.

Sergey Karpov graduated from the Moscow Energy Institute, and later – from Sergey Maksimishin’s "Photography in a Magazine" course, after which he worked as a photojournalist with Reuters, AP, RIA Novosti and other publications. In 2013, he launched the "Mediacrowd" project, aimed at exploring new media. Later he worked together with Sergey Prostakov on the project "The Last 30", which researched the state of post-Soviet society. In 2015, Sergey created and headed the department of special projects of the portal "Takie Dela". Two years ago, he opened an independent children's bookstore "Marshak" in Moscow. Sergey's interests include the study of the identity of post-Soviet cities, the study of historical memory, social integration with the world of new media, new opportunities and forms of visual narration.
