Yuri Saprykin: “It‘s Senseless to Sit in a Train That Isn‘t Going Anywhere“

The journalist Yuri Saprykin made a presentation on How Can We Speak about Classical Literature Today? at the Yasnaya Polyana Cultural Center on March 10, 2018. We talked to him about the popularity of educational projects, about the Shelf literary portal, good books, and the role of museums in the modern world.

Valery Plotnikov: “I Was Lucky to Know Amazing People“


Valery Plotnikov opened his exhibition, Vladimir Vysotsky and Others, at the Yasnaya Polyana Gallery on March 2, 2018. On that day, we talked to the photographer and learned about his favourite photos and his attitude to modern museums and contemporary photography.

They call you a portrayer of the departing epoch. Who do you think could be pictured as the symbol of the second half of the 20th century?

From my point of view, it’s Dmitry Likhachev and Daniil Granin. Those are two great people, and it doesn’t matter that one of them is a scholar and the other – a writer. Simply the way they are, from birth, they are two great people, two true representatives of the intelligentsia, which for our country is a rarity and a wonder.

Online Project: Leo Tolstoy‘s Bookshelf


“They say one should read a lot, but not many books,“ remarked the ancient Roman writer Pliny the Younger. Leo Tolstoy’s reading list illustrates this saying very well. The author’s eldest son, Sergey Tolstoy, remembered that his father “was able to read, which not everyone is capable of.” He remembered what he had read very well and distinguished the books that should be read without any omissions and abridgements, from the ones from which only what is essential should be taken.
