Kirill Gluschenko’s (b. 1983, Kaliningrad) work sees him as head of a fictional publishing house called ‘Gluschenkoizdat’, of which he is also the sole employe — a reporter of sorts — who spends his time visiting towns in Russia and former Eastern bloc, to take photograph and eventually publish books about them. This project took its final form in an exhibition ‘Our Days are Rich and Bright’ (2016, Moscow). Over the years his works evolved towards work with archives and artistic research. Gluschenko holds MA in Photography from Lepzig Academy of Fine Arts and started his PhD at the Estonian Art Academy.
