In commemoration of S.O. Khan-Magomedov.
Russian avant-guard heritage, and architectural as well, has been following our life and influencing on it since long ago. Now it is time to realize this influence in a simple way and put it in one row with other achievements of our culture. Implementation process of avant-guard into Russian history and art history is almost concluded, thanks to great effort of S.O. Khan-Magomedov and other researchers, who were lucky to meet alive witnesses of the topic of their study and to engrave them in publications, memories, and projects. What is the way to make avant-guard as important part of personal history of everyone, who lives in Russia, as architecture of mansions and churches? What is the way to make society conscious about this national heritage?
One of solutions is to create a myth about avant-guard with relevant monuments – both real buildings preserved till nowadays or projects remained on canvas and paper.
In programme: discussion, projects presentation.
