Exhibition "Impossible Travels in the Netherlands, Russia and Persia Then and Now"
21.02.2020 15:59

 Artists from Russia, Iran and the Netherlands decided to recall the ancient cultural ties of their countries and reflect on the real ones. The diary notes of the Dutch sailor Jan Streis became the reason for this extraordinary international project. The author of “Three Journeys” written in the 17th century gives detailed description of the cultural, social and political ties of the three states. The sailor’s notes tell about his journey along the Volga, meeting with the chieftain Stepan Razin, Dagestan captivity and slavery in Persia. 

       The authors of the art project tried to recreate the path of the sailor from the Netherlands and show today's view of Europe and other regions after four centuries.

      All original art objects were intentionally created for this exhibition by its participants Z. S. Marnani and S. Behruzyan from Iran, O. Elagin and O. Stogova from Russia , as well as P. Oltheiten and S. Hendricks from the Netherlands.

Where: Moscow City Museum at the address 2, Zubovsky Boulevard, next to Park of Culture metro station, Moscow.
