Opinion: Olga Sviblova, Director of the Multimedia Art Museum, on the new law on culture

A new bill on culture has been prepared to replace the old, which was adopted in 1992. It reveals the concepts of "a single cultural space", "cultural diversity", "cultural environment", clarifies the content of constitutional human rights in the field of culture, including defines the rights to art education. State Duma deputies hope to adopt the document in the fall, while it is undergoing public discussion. For example, in Moscow, the Moscow-Orenburg-Perm video bridge was held, the participants of which were famous cultural figures of the three cities. One of the Moscow participants was Olga Sviblova, director of the Multimedia Art Museum, academician of the Russian Academy of Arts.

“The concept of the new law, which I read very carefully, seems completely correct to me. The main thing is that, unlike the old one, it is written in it that culture is the most important instrument of modernization, the basis of society. Unfortunately, this is written only in the fifth paragraph of the second, on "To me, chapters. And it should be in paragraph number one! We agreed to change the cap of the law, where the main thoughts are written.

"The city of Orenburg cited statistics: 43% of residents leave the city due to a lack of cultural goods"

It is important that Orenburg and especially Perm, who showed how to breathe culture into the city, were in touch with us at the round table. Our museum has at least 25 projects in the regions every year. We see how people need art and how they react to it. You know, now many are leaving the province for Moscow, not only because there is no work, but because there is nowhere to go. Orenburg cited statistics: 43% of residents leave the city due to a lack of cultural goods.

Of course, there are many things in the law that need to be cleaned and refined. Somewhere too much detail: for example, it is written that a minor has the right to visit the museum once a month for free. Well, how to track this? Put a mark in your passport? That's bullshit. But the fact that there should be free days in museums is correct. In the West, free days have long existed and the state compensates their cultural institutions. The Multimedia Art Museum introduced free days on its own initiative, and these days 3-4 thousand people visit us.

"It is written that a minor has the right to visit the museum once a month for free. Well, how to track this? Is it necessary to put a mark in your passport?"

The law emphasizes the freedom of creativity and creative associations, formal and informal. This solves many issues that are hanging in the air today. After all, someone considers only Michelangelo's art and is offended when graffiti is called that. So there is no need to be offended: the law clearly states that a person has the right to use those cultural goods that suit him and his taste.

Today, the time of science is returning, and therefore it is important that the law contains a clause on educational programs, on the human right to receive an art education. Deputy Ivlev made an astonishing number: it turns out that in a children's music school in Moscow there is a competition of 20 or more people in place. It’s only a pity that the law forgot to write about art education in a regular school. "
