While Manege is still closed to visitors for the time being, work is still going on behind the scenes on a range of new exhibitions. The first of these to await visitors once we reopen is "As They See Us. A Portrait of Russia by the Magnum Agency".
The exhibition is being organised in cooperation with Magnum Photos, and jointly with curator and photo historian Nina Gomiashvili. It will cover the period from 1947 to 2020, and provide an insight into the USSR/Russia through the work of legendary documentary photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Eve Arnold, Thomas Dworzak and others.
In total, the exhibition will feature more than 250 images, many of which will be on public display for the first time.
Usually, the agency offers museums and cultural institutions pre-curated exhibitions which go on tour. This time however, Manege has spearheaded an initiative to put together a completely new cultural project focusing on Russia, using the archives of Magnum Photos and the Foundation Henri Cartier-Bresson.
The exact dates of the exhibition will be announced in due course.
