The Heads of Heroes
Dmitry Tsvetkov casts doubt on the value of longevity in his project “The Heads of Heroes.” He be­lieves that “the moment of life” is overvalued. At the same time as the standard of living is falling our longevity is increasing. He appeals to us: “Do not live to be old!” The severed head becomes an em­bodiment of this radical idea.
