The project by the CGES affiliated researcher Margarita Kuleva, NRU ‘Higher School of Economics', explores creative labour in distinct institutional environments. In 2018, Margarita conducted a research trip to the UK and took a series of in-depth interviews at the major public institutions of London to compare them with her ethnographic data on the large Russian museums of St. Petersburg and Moscow. Results of the study will be published as a Springer book chapter in 2019.
