  1. – What for is the charity under the event “Inthe name of peace”?
    – Helping Peace support organizations?
    – Where are you doing with “the rest half of non-charity works”?
    – Are you sending back works to artists after the show?

    Interesting exhibition, but handling is uncler in details.
    Please explain practical procedures.
