In the House of photography launched an exhibition to mark the anniversary of the first flight

The main exhibit is the lander of the spaceship “Vostok-1”, the one I burned after crossing different layers of the atmosphere. He never left the Museum “Energy”, and if I was, say, in the exhibition space of space, so effectively as in the House pictures would look. Here it is supplemented with documents, technique and art — in short, everything that explains how the dream of space exploration became a reality.

With the trigger camera side by side Gagarin famous images of Valeria gende Rota, where people with sincere joy met an astronaut. Next Suprematist composition by Kazimir Malevich, Nikolai Suetin and Ilya Chashnik border with white holes by Pavel Pepperstein. Two walls given over to projects by Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, who predicted weightlessness. There is even a new star charts Leonid Tishkov and rare drawings of Konstantin Tsiolkovsky.

Between the walls, including built specially for the exhibition in the showcases located in the tin model rocket, model airship, the auditory tube of the scientist. His best quotes adorn the walls of the hall. And hanging from the ceiling, spinning a glowing design “model space” Francisco Infante-Arana and the satellite group “ABC” collected from computer keyboards. A whole room given over to a dozen monitors, pertinent in star infinity.

The attitude of the modern authors to the cosmos very different from the ironic, as on canvas “Flying saucers don’t exist” Andrei Krisanov, to the nostalgic “Pencil Gagarin” Alexander Djikia. For total immersion in the topic for the room are the desks with the writings of Nikolai Fyodorov, most visitors read the “Philosophy of common cause”.

Russian space” — a large-scale work in which archives, and many art sites. For the first time the Director of House of photography and curator Olga Sviblova has shown him in Italy five years ago, when the whole world celebrated the 50-s of the first manned flight into space. And to the 55th, the native Multimedia Art Museum presented an expanded version of the exhibition. It is organized with the support of VTB.
