The Moscow House of Photography, which would later evolve into MAMM, opened in the Russian capital in 1996, when the art of photography was seeing a comeback. The museum was the initiative of Olga Sviblova, a documentary film director and curator of notable Russian art exhibitions abroad: in France, Austria, Finland and elsewhere. The museum adds new exhibits all the time, including video installations and other high-tech displays, drawing huge crowds of visitors. MAMM also does mobile exhibitions.
