The Calvert Journal is a daily briefing on the culture and creativity of modern Russia.
From art and film to architecture and design, avant-garde Russian culture has helped shape our view of modern life. But as a consequence of its difficult politics and history, contemporary Russia still remains unfamiliar territory to many.
Today, thanks to a rising generation of young artistic talent, Russia is in the midst of tremendous change. This is the inspiration for The Calvert Journal, a guide to creative Russia. The Journal delivers a daily briefing on art, design, film, architecture and related cultural areas, through a mix of reportage, interviews, photography and design. From our base in London, we detail the story of Russia’s contemporary culture via a network of writers and contributors stationed across its many regions and time zones.
The Calvert Journal is a project of Calvert 22 Foundation. Further development, currently in planning, involves widening the scope of the Journal beyond Russia to cover the broader region of Eastern Europe.
