Letter to The Future: A Time Capsule

V–A–C Sreda online magazine presents a new three-month series of podcasts devoted to space and its reflection in culture, art, and utopian dreams of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

In this episode, we talk about time capsules. How and where did the world’s first time capsule appear? Why were they so popular during the Soviet period? What message was discoveredduring the reconstruction of GES-2 House of Culture? And what do space, state farms, and modern art have to do with it?

V–A–C Sreda editor Maxim Shibaev discussed these and other questions with Elena Malaya of the European University in Saint Petersburg and the artist and researcher Alia Darvai.
