"The Information banquet-performance "
Anatoly Osmolovsky

This action was carried out in gallery with a view of PR gathering strength in Moscow of movement nonspectacular (invisible) art. Osmolovsky is the initiator of this movement in Russia, having united with the program Escape, invited 13 leading Moscow critics to a solemn banquet with the exquisite food. The critics with mistrust this invitation, expecting from a known radical a provocation, however their expectations were not justified - during the supper Osmolovsky only led a discussion about what kind of art critics would like to see today. Only before the leaving each of visitors received in hands an envelope with the letter - manifest addressed personally to him and containing the latent program of the further actions. This action reproduced a situation of a payoff, and thus got, as usually by Osmolovsky, a political shade.
