Sports in Art
The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts has launched special excursions for football fans. Guides will tell the fans not only about sports, and in particular football in art, but also about how physical culture was treated in antiquity, for example.
Another thematic exposition at the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts - Rodchenko and Stepanova, Football - presents graphic works of art, paintings and photographs by Alexander Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova. They were among the pioneers of the theme of sports in Soviet art.
They were supported by the socialist realist Alexander Deineka, whose “Goalkeeper” is being displayed at the exhibition “Football and Not Only” at the New Tretyakov Gallery in Krymsky Val." Entrance to the exposition will be free for all comers with Fan IDs.
The Ball is Round and the Field is Level

Mandrake on the Couch
The Museum of Contemporary Art "Garage" has opened an exhibition of one of the most radical photo artists - Jürgen Teller. "Mandrake on the Couch" is a personal story of one fan - the photographer himself - and his relationship with the victories and defeats of the German national football team. For all above 18.
In continuation of the sports theme, "Garage" has invited the project "Velonight", which develops sports and excursion routes, to conduct a special trip for football and fan sites in Moscow.
