Art as evidence: What did you do to the Russians?
Speakers: Jana Bučka and Michal Fulier (creators of the film What did You Do To The Russians?), Peter Ivanič (Svet medzi riadkami [The World Between the Lines]), hosted by Michal Hvorecký.
Research suggests that people experiencing frustration evaluate their life as unpredictable, impossible to control, and feel a high level of distrust not only towards institutions, but also within interpersonal relationships, are more prone to believe in conspiracy theories.
