Maxim Sher. Commentary on the landscape

Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA) holds an exhibition “Maxim Sher. Commentary on the landscape ".

The exhibition is based on works by Maxim Sher from three of his projects: Palimpsests (2010–2017), Dictatorship of the Seven Seas (2018) and Archipelago (2019).

Maxim Sher is a Russian photographer and artist whose key research interest is the representation of the post-Soviet cultural landscape and local stories. His works usually depict post-socialist landscapes, everyday landscapes, they are eventless and deliberately non-dramatic. This approach simultaneously inherits American conceptual and politically engaged photography, and closely links it with Russian colleagues - landscape photographers of the early 21st century. At the same time, Scher's interest in politics and space economics inherent in his projects makes his work unique for Russia, where a combination of political engagement and openness to interpretation is not often found in photography.
