Murmansk, Russian Federation
In the spring of 2016 we were to open a large travelling exhibition ‘The Withdrawal of the Red Army’ in the local art museum but due to a rare misunderstanding and censorship the project was not allowed into the museum. Plan B - to look for our own space, and we found it: a white cube in the centre of the city. After the exhibition was held we decided to continue and develop an independent space to further the understanding of contemporary art. The subsequent projects were unexpected in a conservative military city: installations, video art, performance, residences, and meetings with artists. We seek to explore and utilise the local cultural and intellectual scene, to develop productions in collaboration with local craftsmen and designers, as well as offering an educational programme.
