2 The Museum of the Soviet Automobile Industry in Ivanovo

Museo de la Industria del Automóvil Soviética

In 2014, the management of the RIAT group of companies decided to create a museum of Soviet cars. This was not spontaneous, but a tribute to the entire automobile production industry history for many years of the Soviet era. The creation of this museum is an attempt to remember the roots of the RIAT company, which although currently dedicated to various sectors of the industry, performs this exhibition as a tribute to the glorious past.

The history of the creation of the company “Riat” began in those days when, on the basis of auto repair shops, by order of the Commissioner of the Car Transport People of the RSFSR of July 1, 1941, was formed the Car Repair Plant in Ivanovo. During the period from 1941 to 1945, 3,769 GAZ-MM, GAZ-AA, ZIS-5 cars were restored for the battle front, which gives this museum its particular touch in RIAT’s contribution to the Soviet victory in the Second World War.

Until the late 1980s, the Ivanovo car repair plant remained one of GAZ’s main partners. However, the plant began to lose orders quickly, so a drastic change had to be made to the company’s approach, which is why it is no longer popular to find cars produced by this company today.

Dmitry Borisovich Vlasov began a new life of the company. In 1992, under his leadership, RIAT JSC (repair and manufacture of motor vehicles) was established by transforming a rental company: the Ivanovo experimental car repair plant. Stores, a service station and a little later bakery production were built. Over the years, RIAT employees did not stop. and although as we can see today they are dedicated to other commercial approaches, their valuable contribution to Soviet history is invaluable. You can make this visit to appreciate the greatest industrial achievements of the Soviet Union.

Crimea is a place with a wide history of ethnic and cultural diversity, here lived representatives of various ethnic groups: Greeks, Scythians, Sarmatians, Tartars. But apart from them, the Kataries still live on the peninsula, professing a special form of Judaism. His place of worship is called “kenassa”. In many large cities in Crimea these unique structures still exist, but the Karaite kenassa in Simferopol is especially beautiful and surprising. The building, located on Karaimskaya Street, immediately attracts attention with its unusual appearance: a mixture of Byzantine, Gothic and Arab architectural styles.

The kenassa we see today in the center of Simferopol was built at the end of the 19th century. It was built next to the old Kenassa building, which simply stopped giving shelter to believers. What is not surprising: after all, the community grew, expanded and the number of Kataries in the city increased significantly. The kasassa was built with funds donated by the same believers and this happened in 1889 when representatives of the community went to the governor of Tauris with a request to allow them to build a new house of worship, since the old one was very small.

A real city in the city: with mosques, bathrooms, mausoleums, richly decorated, painted and finished with great care and art. When Khan’s new residence was built, the idea of ​​embodying Islamic ideas about paradise was established at the heart of the project, and each subsequent ruler added something of his own. Upon entering the territory of Khan’s palace, you find yourself in the incredible and mysterious atmosphere of the east.

The construction of this incredible palace began in the 16th century, during the reign of Khan Sahib I Giray. Previously, the residence of the Crimean khanes was elsewhere, but the court grew, expanded and, as a result, the ruler himself, the nobles, the numerous servants and guards were filled with people. Then there was a decision to build a new palace, which today we are lucky to see. The oldest buildings in the complex are the Bolshaya Khan Mosque and the Sary-Guzel Baths, erected in 1532. Strictly speaking, there is also an older building here; This is a portal called Demir-Kapy (1508), however, it is worth noting that it was built elsewhere, and here it was moved a little later.

With each subsequent khan, something new appeared in the palace, each ruler wanted to put something in memory here for grateful descendants. During the war between Russia and the Crimean Kanato, when the capital was captured by Field Marshal Minikh’s troops, the palace was destroyed, but Captain Manstein was entrusted with a description of the palace, which he composed. Thanks to this, the palace was restored.

The Artillery Museum was born in the same year as the city itself. In August 1703, Tsar Peter ordered the construction of the Zeichhaus in the territory of the Peter and Paul Fortress, that is. “House of arms”. They began to bring old artillery pieces and military trophies from all over the country, which deserved attention: “for the memory of eternal glory.” One of the first exhibits was a mortar, which in 1605 was painted by a Moscow gunsmith Andrei Chokhov (author of the famous Tsar Canyon).

In 1756, by order of Empress Elizabeth Petrovna (daughter of Pedro I) and thanks to the active work of Field Marshal Peter Shuvalov, the “Zeichhaus” was transformed into the “Memorable Hall of the Main Directorate of Artillery.” At the end of the 18th century, his collection had about 8,000 items.

The true museum life of the collection began in 1868. At that time, the crown of Peter and Paul’s Fortress was used as an arsenal, and banners, banners and medals were also stored. The “Memorable Hall” collection joined him. He was given premises in the east wing of the crown. For heavy weapons he assigned a place in the yard. Since 1872, this entire collection of exhibits was called the “Artillery Museum”. In 1963, the Central Museum of Historical Military Engineering joined the Historical Artillery Museum, and two years later the Military Museum of Communications was included.

The construction of a rural residence in Peterhof began in 1712, and after 3 years, a great construction began in Strelna. Peter wanted to decorate the whole park of the new palace with fountains or, as they were called in those days, “water enchantments”. However, for the fountains to function throughout the day, the engineers had to raise the water to a mark of 10 m above sea level. The area surrounding Strelna is below this mark, and if this happened, the territory would flood.

Tsereteli y Museo de Arte contemporáneo de Moscú

The Moscow Museum of Modern Art, together with the Russian Academy of Arts, presents Lika Tsereteli’s exhibition “Intuitive Topography”, the artist’s third personal project. Penetrated by light and bright colors, the exhibition mainly reflects the emotions and feelings of the author himself. When creating works, Lika Tsereteli is inspired by her sense of beauty, the love of working with fragile materials, the aesthetics of ornaments and patterns, as well as her desire to create beautiful things that I would like to surround myself with in everyday life . “The ornament goes beyond me. I can’t think of anything on purpose, there are only a few impulses of impressions, “he describes his way of working on Lika Tsereteli’s works. And he explains the predominance of glass in the exhibition space:” Why does glass appeal to me so much? ? When I was a child, I saw my father draw stained glass for hours, and then we looked at them ready.That magic light passed through them.

The MMOMA exhibition, created by Alexei Tregubov, describes the characteristics of the glass that prevail in the exhibition as a material that refracts light and can visually change the scale and shape of objects. On the ground floor, ornamental miniatures in black and white and in bright colors surrounded by murals created from the artist’s original works will be displayed. A separate room will be provided under the glass and wood screens, while recalling the modern decorative and applied works using the mosaic technique and the old stained glass compositions.

The second floor will show a series of vases and glass coffins that the artist uses as a canvas and converts with acrylic paints and varnishes into bright and picturesque objects with patterns of smooth lines flowing between each other, abstract shapes and complex combinations of colors. Each exhibition hall is dedicated to a specific series and will become a kind of small gallery, where the emphasis on objects is placed using special architectural structures, tonal and light.
