BEFORE THE WORKSHOP

Perm cultural project: Culture of Perm Krai in its past and present


 Perm Krai is a federal subject of  Russia that includes a lot of different towns. Every town has its own history and a special culture. The most visited by tourists towns and villages are Solikamsk, Kungur, Cherdyn and Khokhlovka. (1)

Solikamsk was founded around 1430 by the Kalinnikovs, merchants from Vologda. The favorable geographical position and abundant reserves of salt sources attracted a lot of traders to Solikamsk. In the seventeenth century Solikamsk was a major transit stopover on the way to Siberia. This contributed to its economic and cultural development and made Solikamsk an important trade, customs, military, administrative and religious centre. (2)

Cherdyn was found on the high right bank of the Kolva River, first mentioned in 1451, and then Cherdyn became the capital of Great Perm Krai. One of the main Cherdyn’s attractions is Pushkin’s local history museum. The main fund of the museum has more than 100 thousand exhibits including a unique collection of copper “bronze” cast Animalistic style of Perm region, iconography, numismatics, ethnography and archeology. Every year the festival “The Heart of Parma” conducts at Cherdyn’s area, festival is based on the novel of the Perm’s writer Alexey Ivanov “Cherdyn - Princess of the mountains”. (2)

Kungur is one of the cultural centres of  Perm Krai. Kungur was founded in 1663. It is the merchant city of masters, famous for its fairs. During fairs everyone is able to observe the process of making glorious Kungur crafts and even try to make memorable souvenirs. Kungur is famous for the Kungur Ice Cave. (3)

The Architectural Ethnographic Open Air Museum is situated near the village of Khokhlovka. Forty acres are occupied by 23 unique monuments of wooden architecture, brought from all over the region: from Cherdyn, Solikamsk, Ocher and other areas. Everybody can see churches, cottages, a watchtower, a fire station, salt barns, a saltern and a windmill there. Inside of buildings there are refurbished interiors. (3) 

Perm is an administrative and cultural centre. Perm is a huge city that stretches along both banks of the Kama River. The Kama river is extremely important for Perm city. For that reason Perm Krai is even called “Prikamie” (a place near the Kama River). Everything here depends on the Kama – both industry and culture. (4)

Perm is often named a theatrical city because there are a lot of theatres in it: “Theatre Theatre”, “Stage Hummer”, “Theatre of Young Spectator” and others. Every theatre has its own speciality. One of the most interesting theatres is “The Perm Opera and Ballet Theatre”. This theatre is the third in the country after the Bolshoi Theatre Ballet in Moscow and the Mariinsky Ballet in St. Petersburg. Nowadays many people from different cities come here to see “The Swan Lake”. Also an international festival “Dyagilev Seasons: Perm - St. Petersburg - Paris” is held in this theatre. (5)

People from all over the world come to Perm to see the excellent collection of wooden sculptures and bronze casts that was found from all Perm Krai (near Kungur, Solikamsk, Cherdyn and others). It’s the only place where such a collection exists. (6)

Generally speaking, Perm is a grand experiment. Previously Perm has been a city of contemporary culture. All started with the appearance of Perm museum of conservative art.  PERMM museum was opened in 2009 with the support by the Perm governor Oleg Chirkunov.

After changing cultural policy the appearance of the city changed too. Over and over again new art projects appear in Perm bringing new bright colours and up-today atmosphere; and it is impossible to ignore and pass it by therefore streets seem to turn into galleries and exhibition halls and art becomes closer to the audience. Now Perm filled dozens of installations. There are some of them “The Perm Gate” by Polissky, the letter “П” as a symbol of the city and the red “family” (Red People). It's ought to emphasize that transformations in cultural life of Perm Krai hold with support of the regional Department of culture, youth policy and mass communications (7).

Also Perm has its festivals. “Zhivaya Perm” (Live Perm) is one of them. The idea of this “Festival of Festivals” is to show all existing forms of Art at once and to show everything the city has.  In 2011 the festival was called the “White Nights in Perm”. The idea of the festival is to become the “antifestival” – not some special occasion, but the habitual one. Another festival that is held on the territory of the Memorial Museum of the History of  Political Repressions “Perm - 36” is “Pilorama” (Sawmill). The festival has deep ideological background. The festival consists of theatre performances, cinema, music concerts, master-classes, discussions.  One of the oldest festivals in Perm is “Flahertiana”the Documentary Film Festival. The program of  Flahertiana from year to year is international: with at least 15 countries around the world involved. (7)

The new cultural policy has already found fans and opponents and this conflict has created a specific “cultural dialogue” in Perm: perhaps Perm now is one of a few centers in Russia where problems of culture are discussed in literal sense on streets.  (8)

We ought to note that this presentation was prepared with support of the Department of culture, youth policy and mass communications of Perm Krai.
