The High of Culture Gallery49 Rashpilevskaya Street, Krasnodar Krai, Russia
On the 5th of September 2018 the Shukhov Tower in the center of Krasnodar was captured and transformed into a gallery. At the moment, several exhibitions of different authors have been organized at the High.
« … At the same time, the official media, which, by the way, is still considered to be very liberal by the standards of our Cossack region, two officials comment on the exhibition on the tower. Both the head of the state protection of the cultural heritage of the region and the press service of the shopping mall come to the conclusion that an unauthorized gallery on an architectural monument does not contradict either laws or business interests. It would seem that the city is a layer of various conflicts. And here in the center of these intersections suddenly the place which as if is nobody’s is found out. Empty and secluded. A fragment of Soviet modernism, the top of which is hidden from view by long unused billboards.»
