March 8 – May 15. Project «Bureau des transmissions»

«Bureau des transmissions» is the experimental project of the Garage Museum of Contemporary art. It encourages visitors to look at educational strategies as an integral part of life of a contemporary museum.

The project brings together Russian and international artists interested in a range of pedagogical practices, whether they are already present in art or suggested as ways of rethinking our relationship with museum culture.

Swiss duo «microsillons» (Marianne Guarino-Huet and Olivier Desvoignes) has developed a participatory project that explores interactions between the museum and its visitors, situations of conflict, confrontation, and dissensus. Guarino-Huet and Desvoignes invite visitors to start a dialogue with a Garage educator by picking up one of the mugs placed on the stairs. Every mug features a text or an image suggesting a topic, and the ideas that arise from the ensuing conversation will later become texts or images on other mugs. More
