Russia in Europe

07 April, 2015

As Liden & Denz students, maybe you are going back home soon, or maybe you haven’t left to Russia yet. In whichever situation you might be, it might be interesting for you to know of a few events taking place in London, Paris and Amsterdam in the next couple of weeks.


  1. Art and social comments at London’s GRAD

“From a brick sculpture that recalls the recently redrawn map of the Ukraine to footage of young Moscovites filmed on a mobile phone”, this new exhibition called “Borderlands”, that will take place at GRAD (Gallery for Russian Arts and Design) will be displaying the work of contemporary Russian and Ukrainian artists. These artists express their views on the political and social situations in their home countries. “Named after marginal territories that overlap with imprecision, the exhibition addresses the contemporary shift of borders between art and action, art and activism, art and life.”

  1. Russian art collections in Paris

The exhibition “Les Chefs d’une Passion”, organized by Louis Vuitton Foundation, will be displaying Russian collections, including the famous painting by Henri Matisse, “The Dance”, which will be there until July 6th. This event resulted from the cooperation of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts and the State Russian Museum with the State Hermitage Museum.
