Eco Walks with Garage

13 June – 31 August 2019

DESCRIPTION

As part of the public program accompanying the exhibition The Coming World: Ecology as the New Politics 2030–2100, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art invites visitors to explore the Museum’s surroundings, Gorky Park.

Eco walk participants can explore the park, the garden (Neskuchny Sad), and the river embankment, which are some of the city’s key ecosystems. Alongside numerous species of animals and plants, humans are also active agents within this system. Located in the heart of Gorky Park, the Museum can also be viewed as an integral element, whose development affects the system as a whole.

Together with specialists in the field of botany, zoology, and anthropology, participants will explore the flora and fauna of the environment around Garage: from plants and insects to people. The group will have the opportunity to observe birds, plants, and animals and discuss how their behavior has changed as the city developed and how closely their life today is connected with humans.

Eco walks will take place morning and evening on weekdays and at weekends, acting as either a refreshing start to the day or a relaxing open-air get-together after work. Participants will be provided with binoculars.

Walks are organized together with the Zoological Museum of Moscow State University.
