What was the role of philosophy and cinematography in its persecution and establishment? Which humanities and why did they use cybernetics in the Soviet Union? What was the Soviet cybernetics art like, who was producing it and why did everyone forget about it? Why did they fail to keep successiveness between Soviet and post-Soviet artists who worked with digital tools?
