A moving photography exhibition has opened in Minsk, organised by the Museum of Modern Fine Art and the Center of Modern Art. Work by Sergey and Dmitry Brushko is being shown in a Minsk tram on route #1. To get to the exhibition, one has only to take a ride in the tram–car #118 moving along the route #1 from 6.14 to 10.13 a.m. and from 3.11 to 7.25 p.m..
Launching the exhibition, the organisers are striving to rekindle a tradition of tram exhibitions that were popular in Minsk during the period of late 1980s – early 1990s.
The project is aimed to show the way that two generations of Belarusians see their everyday life. It is a story of a country that has just gained independence. A father and a son tell their tales through the pictures showcased at the exhibition.Two representatives of one family who studied and grew up in different eras and in different countries are trying to compare their views through the system of their values.
The photographs of the 1980s–1990s photo film era are presented along with the digital color photos demonstrating the difference in technology and the pace of life, and the gap between two generations.
The exhibition seeks to pull a passenger out of the flow of his/her routine and suggests looking in a photographic mirror. Some of the photos may seem naive; some display a hint of sarcasm. Generally speaking, these are the sketches of everyday life in Belarusian cities, towns, and villages. But the works are steeped in the love and grief of the authors for their home grounds.
