We will set off on a journey through the virtual exhibitions all over Russia with the full-immersion effect provided by Intechtur cultural and educational center.

There will be a series of online excursions and discussions, where art historians, curators and artists will take part. See detailed program at the library’s website.

Reviewing the Culture Online award-winning concert dated 2020

“Russian-German Music Academy Online – for the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II” became the best online project. Russian and German classical music, as well as works by composers from other countries related to the theme of World War II were played in empty concert halls in Berlin, Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Listening (and watching!) to podcasts

Variety of topics – about famous artists, musical culture and Russian literary Renaissance. Of particular interest is a “Dialogues about Art” podcast for the deaf in Russian sign language. It is about the unique temporary exhibitions in the museums of Moscow and St. Petersburg.
