Vagrich Bahchanyan was the author of thousands of images, collages, dozens of notebooks, hundreds of book and magazine covers, more than a hundred tomes of ‘telephone illustrations’, absurdist plays and numerous aphorisms, such as “We were born to make Kafka come true”. The absurd and surrealistic world of Bahchanyan fills the screen of the film – pictures, animations, performances, theater. This world contains his mystery – and the mystery of the ‘Black Square’ as well.
