«Работа с сознанием — это прагмема»
М. Мамардашвили

The Pragmema Project is an independent research project  whose subject is Russian  everyday life as perceived in collective symbolical practices.

Pragmemas are the primary matrices of perception and interpretation which create our reality and it is they, naturally, which form the scenarios for our  actions.  Today’s Russian citizen, formed by the naïve positivism of the country's  native schools of thought, knows little about the practices of his or her own daily life, that is the daily business, with which we are all preoccupied (without ever letting go of our electronic 'gadgets')- the business of recognizing, controlling, loving, accepting and giving gifts, weeding  our parent’s vegetable patches at  the dacha, choosing  our clothes or our children’s education , adding to our  photos in social networks,  tending our graves, and so on and so forth.
