Program has been carried out during 15 days, each day opening a new problem for the public. It was organized around the case study of Women Diaspora, mini-symposium Ab ovo (going to archeology, genetics and theology), accompained with crucial problems but always presented from another territory. Being capable of speaking via artworks (mostly video and film) on problems found at the place, public has started to speak on own problems. Their numbers was growing to about 300 people on lectures, 200 on exhibitions in a small city. Many of articles and interviews have been produced in the realm to participate in the project of the edited book announced. Presentation would underline ways art pieces were used to open up questions.
