Relaunch of Beauty in Hell: Culture in the Gulag

About this Event

The Hunterian invites you to an online event to mark the relaunch of the virtual exhibition Beauty in Hell: Culture in the Gulag.

Beauty in Hell reveals the unique circumstances of Russia's first Gulag, the Solovki Prison Camp, and how the cultural activity of the intelligentsia sentenced there formed a resistance to the systematic violence and oppression which came to define it.  This relaunch will highlight the addition of the image of a cloth sewn by a prisoner of the camp, courtesy of the Sakharov Centre in Moscow.

Irina Flige, Director of the Memorial Research and Information Centre in St. Petersburg will talk at this event. 

The virtual exhibition highlights current research by Dr Andrea Gullotta, Lecturer in Russian Studies at the University of Glasgow.

This online event will be recorded.
