V–A–C Sreda online magazine concludes its three-month series of podcasts dedicated to unusual museums in Russia in collaboration with the Zapovednik project.
In this episode, we talk about the role of rubbish in art and culture. Where did the idea to create the Art Museum of Garbage in the Kaluga region come from? Can plastic bottles help us understand the fractal structure of the Universe? And what meanings does garbage acquire in the works of contemporary artists?
V–A–C Sreda editor Maxim Shibaev discusses these and other questions with Yulia Matrenina, director of The Art Museum of Garbage, Vladislav Efimov, an artist and curator, and Misha Burym, a ColLab participant who uses industrial waste and other found materials in his works.
