Critical Archiving Laboratory (Anton Lapov & Larion Lozovoy) is an interdisciplinary research group based in Kyiv. Its activities are aimed at the development of non-conventional forms of archival representation, and creation of communicative museological situations. Engaged in a broad thematic field, the Laboratory is constantly searching for relevant methods of artistic research and presentation, acting at the intersection of historical, anthropological and new media practices. In particular, their lecture-presentation in Barriera was dedicated to the discussion of the functions of a post-Soviet museum within the late capitalist formation.
