Sekretiki for GARAGE cardholders

11 December 2019
11:00–18:00

DESCRIPTION

Garage Museum of Contemporary Art invites GARAGE cardholders to be the first to see the exhibition Sekretiki: Digging Up Soviet Underground Culture, 1966–1985.

Through the metaphorical comparison with the Soviet kids’ popular pastime—“sekretiki”—the exhibition presents Soviet underground art as a form of secret knowledge shared by a circle of friends and collaborators and requiring protection from the outside forces of ideological control and censorship. During the Soviet period, such secret activities were not limited to art but also included spiritual practices, from yoga to esotericism and alternative medicine. The show, which is inspired by Garage Archive Collection, explores the human passion for mystery and ritualized “secrets”.

Sekretiki: Digging Up Soviet Underground Culture, 1966–1985 continues the Museum’s series of exhibition projects based on materials from Garage Archive.
