Trans-Russian Art Project “9000 km” in Klaipeda


Klaipeda, 10.10 – 9.11.2014

The trans-Russian net project “9000 km” is a cooperation of curators from cultural and educational national institutions from 8 Russian regions, the representatives of “Russian diasporas” in the countries of the former Soviet Union and abroad.9000 kilometers is a distance from the western to the eastern border of Russia. The kilometers of geography of the “one fifth part of the land” that is united rather by territory, by regions, than by economy and politics.

The project “9000” emerged from the aspiration to reflect the new artistic geography of each region, demonstrate their cultural components and also to comprehend the common artistic “ideogram” that would be identical to the contemporary condition of “the big fatherland” that is both European and Asian, liberal and conservative, centralized and provincial. In every region was formed a creative group that represented artistic or social “brand” of its “place”.
