This will be followed by the tasting of Malevich-design inspired cookies, bite-size Black Squares and self-service of a variety of teas. Photo ops in front of the wooden cutouts of the Malevich-design-inspired figures of characters from Victory over the Sun will also be available. Bring your cameras!
