Capital artist Mike Bridge, along with Teens from project schools "Cascade" painted one of the walls of the Museum of Moscow to attract attention to the problems of the deaf and hard of hearing people. The facade of the Museum there was the graffiti "deaf" where "Nemo" crossed out in such a way that there remains only the word "deaf".
According to the authors of the work, the deaf adolescents Ivan Dneprova and Daniel Chetverikova, thus visually expressed a ban on the use of the word "deaf" in relation to the deaf community.

This is due to the fact that the deaf are not dumb, they have a voice and its language, Russian sign language, which since 2012 is recognized on the legislative level. Placing graffiti in the center of Moscow, Ivan and Dan define this area as one where possible on an equal footing on the important.
According to the curators of a group of deaf teens Vlad Kolesnikov and Maria Sarychevoy, fighting against the word "deaf" being deaf and hard of hearing people for years.
