The publication documents the outcomes of the cultural education project Pedagogical Poem, conceived by Arseny Zhilyaev and Ilya Budraitskis and organized by V-A-C Foundation. Pedagogical Poem is a unique interdisciplinary research conducted at the intersection of the history, contemporary art and pedagogy. A series of over 100 meetings took place between March and November 2012 at the Presnya Historical Memorial Museum. These series consisted of lectures and seminars led by Russian and international artists, historians, cultural theorists as well as master-classes of various artists. The project led to the formation of a group of permanent visitors and auditors of the series who had diverse professional interests. They were united by their interest in this project and common practices of creative cooperation.
