The special guest of our evening will be Ivan Kvasov, PhD in biology, lecturer and popularizer.

Ivan is not just a man of science; he is also an excellent storyteller, who knows how to tell incredibly exciting stories. 

Humans have two emotions that other animals don't: shame and disgust. And not only in the literal sense, but also figuratively - a disgusting act, for example. Let's talk about how this applies to sex, aggression, altruism, reputation, and also about how it relates to our new exhibition "Taboo" with works rejected by the norms of society and social networks.

Ivan Kvasov was born in 1972 in St. Petersburg, where he lived most of his life until his recent immigration to Israel. Has participated in numerous travels and expeditions. In addition to a successful scientific career, he was a copywriter and marketing director of the Creative Workshop of Andrey Kislyuk (AKTM), and later his own advertising agency. He was a frequent guest on the jury of prestigious advertising festivals.

Ivan Kvasov speaks of himself as follows: was born, studied, married, divorced, worked, was lazy, left  his grandmother, left  his girl, was not eaten by a fox, didn’t fight, didn’t give up, tried, aspired, achieved.

Ivan has already given a very interesting lecture in Bohause. Here you read about it.
