On September 9, GARAGE cardholders and Garage Endowment Fund donors who make a monthly donation have the opportunity to be the first to see the two new exhibition projects at Garage: Thomas Demand. Mirror Without Memory and Spirit Labor: Duration, Difficulty, and Affect.
Visitors can join scheduled tours of the exhibitions and enjoy access to the Rooftop Pavilion, which will be open throughout the day and serving food and drinks created for the exhibition Spirit Labor. At 19:00 a party featuring DJ sets by Sveta Saiko and Kierastoboy will start in the pavilion, supported by Mirror Without Memory exhibition partner Falconeri.
This is the first Russian exhibition of German photographer Thomas Demand. Borrowing images of events from the press or other sources, Demand reproduces them in life size from cardboard and paper—essentially making sculptures—which he then photographs and destroys.
Curator: Katya Inozemtseva, Chief Curator at Garage
The exhibition explores the relatively small segment of contemporary art that is dedicated to investigating and challenging the durational dimension of time, be it through the body of the artist or the act of making and viewing art. It brings together works by 30 artists from different generations across Southeast and Central Asia, the Caucasus, and Eastern and Western Europe.
Curators: Snejana Krasetva, Andrey Misiano

Garage Endowment Fund accumulates donations from individuals and businesses to support the Museum’s activities in years to come. Donations to the Endowment Fund are not used to support existing activities but to generate investment income that is used for the Museum’s development or may be reinvested. The launch of the endowment in 2018 was an important stage in the Museum’s sustainable development program (understood as a systemic, balanced approach to development). Today Garage Endowment Fund is the third largest museum endowment in Russia.
