Kiril Ass

Alexander Brodsky Studio



The current image of Russia is mainly dark, threatening and enigmatic. Is it really so one-dimensional? Architect and architectural theorist Kiril Ass paints a critical picture of the country from the inside out, with special focus on Moscow’s urban development since 1989. From the turbo capitalism of the 1990s, followed by a phase of liberalisation, to the current shift towards nationalism and contradictory ideas of old grandeur – notions of the future that ultimately revolve only around the past.

Ass works as an architect in the firm of Alexander Brodsky. He also teaches at the independent Moscow School of Architecture. Together with his wife Nadya Korbut he creates immersive exhibitions for institutions such as the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and the Jewish Museum.
