A merit badge

The few Moscow institutions that provide contemporary art education seem to be insufficient. The young artists or any otherwise involved people usually study in two or three of the places, collecting their art educations as if they were scout merit badges, and you have to get them all. The unsatisfiable desire for a certain knowledge, a skill or an understanding is what makes us again and again apply to more educational institutions. What does it take to become an artist?
