Post-Soviet Suburbia: KIRILL SAVCHENKOV’s “Umwelt”

In his project Umwelt, Savchenkov studies suburbs as habitat—both utopian and dystopian, real and virtual. Shown through the prism of eclectic memories, it is a pop cultural playground for the young, littered with plastic bags and energy drink cans. It is a mythical space of the ideals that have been abandoned by their creators, left free to grow and develop on their own.
