Open Storage of the Museum
of contemporary history of Russia
The Capitalist World and Soviet Russia
on a Chessboard
Interactive Project
Sometimes a single exhibit can tell you more about the history of an era than the whole collection of a museum.
Play this unique game – gather the unusual figures* on the chess board and they will tell you the story of the 1920s Soviet propagandists and how they divided the world between “us” and “them.”
* This interactive game is based on a unique exhibit of the Open storage of the Museum of Modern Russian History – the chessboard titled “The Capitalist World and Soviet Russia”
