Explore historical precedents and current sociopolitical conditions to find new perspectives on contemporary art.
Garage’s extensive program of exhibitions, education, and publishing reflects on developments in Russian and international culture, creating opportunities for discourse, as well as the production of new work and ideas in Moscow. The foundation for all these activities is the Museum’s collection, which is the first archive in the country related to the development of Russian contemporary art from the 1950s through to the present.
The process of research takes many forms—from producing primary material to gathering secondary sources for comparison and analysis—and involves committed interactions with people, places, and documents that are otherwise overlooked or underutilized. Covering a diverse range of topics, Garage Research Initiatives do not just happen behind closed doors, but instead evolve through continuous engagement with the public, who are invited to share in the production and generation of knowledge during the nascent development of the Museum.
This long-term research program initiated by Garage Research in 2015 explores developments in self-organized artistic and curatorial practices in Russia since 2000.
