MMOMA:ONE WITHIN THE OTHER

“Art of New and Old Media in the Age of High-speed Internet” – that is what was said on its site.

The exhibition took place in MMOMA from December, 16th, 2015, till March, 8th, 2016.
I had seen some photos from that exhibition before I have chosen it as a place to go. We went there on the third Sunday of the month so the entrance was free. In addition we were allowed to walk inside the building in our outwear, because the cloackroom was full. Lucky we are (it was cold inside).

The museum is located on 25, Petrovka street (m.Pushkinskaya). It’s easy to get there (it took us 15 mins), you just need to have an online map, an ordinary map or to have a brilliant sense of locality.
When you enter the territory of the museum the first thing you see is a large number of sculptures. Each of them has its own history but it’s no sense to talk about it here. Inside the building there is a little cloackroom (he), ticket desk and a hall (the main entrance to the exhibitions). As it was a free-ticket day, we were able to visit all the exhibitions at once.

On the first floor there were some New York photos, on the second – Typewriter and the 20th-Century Consciousness exhibition, on the third – ONE WITHIN THE OTHER. The last two were the most memorable for me:
The second one was amazing with the typewriters of the most popular and famous poets and writers of the XX century in Russia, with the rough copies of their works and media and video files of some perfomances. There even was a Leo Tolstoy’s typewriter! And the coolest one was Brodskiy’s. A nice woman give me a little free excursion so I was quite into all this. The next exhibition was a contemporary (more minimalistic and free-minded). There were 8 (?) rooms with pictures, films and some other installations. They all were about the Internet, freedom, soc.life and nets, which are not only interNETS. I wanted to take some photos on my film but is was forbidden to use flash so I had to use no-flash mode. As a result I have these photos. They remind me of some works of Japanese photographers that’s why I like them a lot.

I hope you like the photos and have a nice day.
