The Pushkin Museum presents a project where people who create and reflect on art share their experiences of meaningful living of time.

Section A "Media Quarantine". Artists and curators share their own methods for taming time.

Section B "Time: Category of Contemplation". Artists, curators and researchers tell about a work from the history of art that explores the theme of delaying time, contemplation, solitude.

Section C "Digital Exchange". Exclusive broadcasts of works of the most important international media artists. 

Map of Participants



Self-isolation is a common thing for people working with creative practices. Artists, writers and philosophers find their own ways to tame time, dig into the very contexture of daily life. Over the centuries, they have fixed instructions and techniques to help them overcome the fear of the empty page, fight demons of doubt, create universal artistic expressions, all staying alone with themselves.

With this project, we play with the tonality of guides for effective time management and dealing with procrastination. It is a meaningful living of our time and revealing the magical properties of everyday routine and solitude that we declare our success criterion. Together with The Pushkin Museum, our audience is going to learn creative meditation and meaningful living of time, during an imaginary journey through art history. 

It is an open research project together with artists, art historians, writers, collectors regularly published on a special landing page of The Pushkin Museum. The project is divided into three sections, each gives a unique vision of how to live a second, minute or month.
