Yeltsin Center “Freedom Gallery”

The Freedom Gallery media program encourages museum visitors to think about the meaning of freedom for each individual person, as well as actively participate in shaping the collective story. We recorded over 50 prominent political and cultural figures and world leaders, including Bill Clinton and Tony Blair, who share their thoughts on freedoms and the legacy of President Yeltsin. The recordings are projected full-length on five columns, each of which stands for a particular constitutional freedom. The essential part of the Freedom Gallery is two video recording booths, where all visitors can create videos with their own statements about freedom. These videos are then featured on the columns, merged with the voices of celebrated public figures.
