The Moscow Museum of Modern Art and the Vadim Sidur Museum present Re-Locations, a project by Mikhail Tolmachev, which explores the mechanisms of human perception and imagination in constructing ideas of the collective past through subjective memories and mediated experience.

Vadim Sidur is a prominent figure among Soviet unofficial art of the second half of the twentieth century. His biography is a history of a person who struggled through the pre-war poverty, evacuation, experienced the Great Patriotic War and was severely wounded in the hostilities. A history of a person who thanks to his dedication to the way he had chosen was able to gain a voice to be listened to not only in his native land but also beyond its borders.
