Abstract or Description

Terms ID and identity are pretty new to the Russian language. They are used alongside the words passport and personality. What is the difference? What kind of new opportunities and challenges do these notions carry? Why is it important to talk about identity in the 21 st century? How are new technologies used to identify people? What role does contemporary art play in advancing new meanings of identity? We have invited experts from different fields to discuss issues concerning identity and identification. They include an artist, curator, doctor, lawyer, musicologist and sociologist who are well-known in St. Petersburg and internationally. Will they agree to disagree?
