Magnum Live Lab Moscow, 2019
Magnum photographers devise, shoot and exhibit in Moscow for the next Live Lab
The idea of the Magnum Live Lab – which has already taken place in London, Paris and Shenzhen – is to open up the creative process of making, editing and presenting a photographic project for an audience.
Following the completion of the first part of the Magnum Live Lab in Moscow this past winter, featuring photographers Thomas Dworzak, Alex Majoli and Newsha Tavakolian, the experimental laboratory is returning to the city this July.
Over the course of two weeks, Gueorgui Pinkhassov, Mark Power and Alex Webb will be photographing modern Moscow and its inhabitants, editing and printing the work on site at the Museum of Architecture alongside curator Nina Gomiashvili. The new work they shoot will create a spontaneous exhibition in the hall, which will develop in real time throughout the project.
The photographers will be at the location every afternoon from 4pm to 8pm for the duration of the Live Lab from July 2 to 15, which is open to the public.
The results of Magnum Live Lab/19 will be on display in a final exhibition curated by Nina Gomiashvili from July 16 to September 1, 2019 at Schusev State Museum of Architecture.

The project is organized by The Project Office for the Development of Tourism in Moscow with the support of Moscow City Tourism Committee, Magnum Photos and Schusev State Museum of Architecture.
