Blessed Moscow: Signs of the city
The culture of the city, its signs and rituals - this is the non-material fabric of the city life. Secret language. You may not know the exact addresses of the houses in your area, but there will always be signs that will give them meaning: "there used to be a Magnolia", "a former Kalinin avenue", "a house with graffiti in the yard". Signs and rituals are brief messages to those who knows how to read them. At the lecture from Blessed Moscow, we will learn to understand the types of urban symbolism and will learn to read the signs created by the residents of different cities of the world.
