In 1989, when former residents of the large apartment house at Pushkinskaya,10 moved out for the building’s renovation, former communal apartments were occupied by workshops, galleries, clubs and recording studios. In 1998, when the building repair work was completed, artists received space here for implementing their ideas. One can stop by the New Academy of Fine Arts Museum to see how Timur Novikov’s spiritual descendants and followers developed his idea of preserving classical esthetics in a modern environment. Dver (the Door), The Bridge over Stiks, Navicula Artis, 2.04 – all these galleries are still open. Vampuka Theater, Deboshir Film Studio and the office of the John Lennon Temple of Music, Love and Peace are here as well.
