Gennady Prikhodko collection

About the archive

The archive donated by Gennady Prikhodko contains two parts. One is located in Moscow and includes materials related to the history of Dvizhenie (Movement) group, including archive documents (manifestos, group members’ autobiographies, scenarios of kinetic performances, etc.), photographs, sketches of installations, and private documents of Lev Nussberg. This part was collected and preserved by Prikhodko in the 1970s, when, in the process of emigration from the Soviet Union, Nussberg could not take some of his archival materials with him. It also features several letters written by Nussberg to Prikhodko.

The second part of the archive, located in St. Petersburg, is composed of photographs taken by Prikhodko from the 1970s to the 1990s. These shots document exhibitions of Leningrad non-official artists at the Gaz House of Culture (1974), Nevsky House of Culture (1975), and Ordzhonikidze House of Culture (1976), as well as apartment exhibitions, concerts and meetings, and studio interiors of the 1970s and 1980s. The archive includes over sixty original photographs printed by the artist and over 300 digital and digitalized photographs.

Gennady Prikhodko (b. 1938) was part of “gaza-nevskaya culture”, a grouping within Leningrad’s unofficial art scene. In the 1960s, he began taking photographs. From 1972 until the mid-1980s, he documented numerous unofficial exhibitions and events in Leningrad. He lives and works in St. Petersburg.
