Artistic duo 1+1=1

Every Day Is Exactly the Same

Open one hour before and after events at HAU2


German / With consecutive translation / Russian / 

“1+1=1” art group is a collaborative project by the Belarusian artists Mikhail Gulin and Antonina Slobodchikova, which emerged in 2005 when the artists performed their first collaborative action at the centre of Minsk. Working mainly individually, they perform together from time to time, exploring the concept of collective artistic work.

Despite the autonomous character of the installations presented in the frame of the exhibition “Every Day Is Exactly the Same”, the artworks create a space of commonality between the artists and proceed from each other.


Mikhail Gulin is a conceptual artist, curator of exhibition projects, and actionist. He was born in 1977 in Gomel. He graduated from the Belarusian Academy of Arts in 2004. His art is dedicated to political issues and explores social stereotypes through the images of pop culture and Western art. Since the 2000s, Gulin is one of the most influential Belarusian artists who make interventions in public, focusing on the functions of the public sphere in Belarus. His artworks were presented in galleries in Minsk, Brest, Eindhoven, Vilnius, Moscow, Warsaw, Kyiv and other cities. He lives and works in Minsk.

Antonina Slobodchikova was born in Minsk in 1979. In 2005, she graduated from the Belarusian State Academy of Arts, Monumental Art Department. She has taken part in many exhibition projects in Belarus, Lithuania, Poland and Germany. She works in a variety of media, including spatial installation, videos, ready-mades and objects. In her works, Slobodchikova researches personal experience, self-identification, maternity, body and fear, death, nature of time. She lives and works in Minsk.
