Secrets: digging in the Soviet underground. 1966–1985

"Secrets" is a well-known children's game of the Soviet era. Showing your «secrets» to selected friends – valuable little things hidden in the ground under a piece of glass – was an early experience in forming a circle of “our own,” and their break down was an experience of invading personal space. The exhibition shows underground art as secret knowledge, accessible to a circle of friends and like-minded people in need of protection from external forces of ideological control and censorship. In Soviet times, however, not only works of art, but also spiritual practices, from yoga and esotericism to alternative medicine, became “secrets”. It will take place in Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and will last until 24th of May 2020.
