Popular child's play of the Soviet era

"Small secrets: Digging in the Soviet Underground.1966–1985" uses the children's game "sekretiki" (Eng: secrets) to present underground art as secret knowledge accessible only to a circle of close friends and peers and as something to be protected from the outside world, politics and censorship. In Soviet times, not only works of art, but also spiritual practices, from yoga and esotericism to alternative medicine, could become "secrets". At the same time, the exhibition, which is based on The Garage Museum Archive, explores the human natural attraction to secrets and a ritual of "secrecy". The virtual tour is led by Jenya Koynova and Kseniya Artyomova, the mediators of the exhibition.

Providing opportunities for dialogue, as well as the production of new works and ideas, the museum's extensive program of exhibitions, events, educational projects, research, and publishing reflects the current developments in Russian and world arts.
