“Eternal Russia” is a glance at a few centuries of Russian history.

About

The curator and critic Marina Davydova develops together with the stage designer and artist Vera Martynov and the composer Vladimir Rannev a performative, installation-like parcour, which will spatially make accessible the connection between Russian history and the present. The project presents the very short but bright interlude of the political, artistic, and sexual awakening after the revolution of 1917. Why could these ideas not be implemented in the long run? The piece is an attempt to explain the barbaric change of Soviet socialism, which just ten years after the revolution was transformed into totalitarian dictatorship, skillfully hiding behind Communist slogans. Furthermore, it deals with one hundred years of longing for the pre-revolutionary Russian Empire. An image of the great Russian utopia arises.
