Russian Photography: Siberia Imagined and Reimagined
Siberia Imagined and Reimagined brings photographs of Siberia by Russian photographers to the American public for the first time. Countless images of Siberia by non-Russian photographers have been published and those depictions have shaped perceptions around the world. Siberia Imagined and Reimagined offers an insiders view.

The depth, range, and accomplishment of Siberian photography is impressive. Depicting subjects ranging from the everyday to the bizarre, the photographs span more than 130 years, beginning with the late 19th century and continuing to the present. They cover rural and urban scenes, landscapes, native peoples, agriculture and industry, Russian frontier settlements, the Gulag, religion, and the everyday lives of Siberians.

Fifty photographers have contributed their work to Imagined and Reimagined. Their intimate connection with Siberia is expressed in their photos and in personal comments that accompany the work. Contributions by the State Historical Museum, the Moscow Literature Museum, and other museums in Russia deepen the story by offering revealing glimpses into Siberias past.

Siberia Imagined and Reimagined is a geographical portrait that has the potential to alter stereotypes and challenge the simplicity of long held beliefs. The project is particularly timely as Siberias role grows larger on a world stage where players are increasingly interconnected. The regions military, political, and economic possibilities have intrigued individuals and nations for centuries. They do so now with renewed vigor as Siberias energy and mineral resources and strategic location attract global attention.

The exhibition is organized by the Foundation for International Arts and Education, a nonprofit committed to promoting cultural exchange among museums in the united States and the countries of Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia.

Happy People: A Year in the Taiga
With Happy People: A Year in the Taiga, acclaimed filmmaker Werner Herzog takes viewers on yet another unforgettable journey into remote and extreme natural landscapes. Herzog presents this visually stunning documentary about the people living in the heart of the Siberian Taiga. Deep in the wilderness, far away from civilization, 300 people inhabit the small village of Bakhtia at the river Yenisei. There are only two ways to reach this outpost: by helicopter or boat. Theres no telephone, running water or medical aid, The locals, whose daily routines have barely changed over the last centuries, live according to their own values and cultural traditions. With insightful commentary written and narrated by Herzog, Happy People: A Year in the Taiga follows one of the Siberian trappers through all four seasons of the year to tell the story of a culture virtually untouched by modernity.
