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.
