Evgenia Nedosekina

Project: The Shadow Empire. A Tale of One State (Cherkizovsky market)/Buried Freedom (Manezh) (2011)

research theme: Design
Directors: Stefano Boeri

Evgenia Nedosekina is from Moscow. She studied in the Design research theme with Stefano Boeri. Her research focused on the Cherkizovsky Market, a huge and sprawling outdoor market that for years functioned in a suburb of Moscow. Thousands of people worked at the market; it had such a big impact on people’s lives that even a soap opera was made about it. Evgenia’s work investigated the role of “suitcase trade” and informal or semi-legal markets in the transitional period of post-Soviet history. Evgenia currently works at Strelka.
