Alevtina Kakhidze broadcasted last year a three video-channel news from VDNKh pavilion every day during the ten days of the Moscow biennial. At midday there was the Future News broadcasted, which was all about vision. In the afternoon there was the Present News, about events happening at that moment in VDNKh. The Past News in the evening was  based on a text about Strawberry Andreevna, who lives in Zhdanovka, a small town to the northeast of Donetsk that has seen some of the heaviest fighting in the war in 2014.
