M HKA exhibits and collects works by artists from Russia and other countries of the former USSR.

Web based project

This artistic research project inherits the name of a popular Soviet book on nature for children. The main question of the project is also simply formulated - “What is nature”? Attempts to give it an answer include a broad and contradictory spectrum of practices — from quasi-scientific speculation to ecstatic romanticism, from classical natural philosophy to new epistemologies. The project is published on forestjournal.org and is based on collaboration with fellow artists.
