The First Illustrated Edition
of Constitution of Russian Federation
The Russian constitution celebrates its tenth anniversary in
December of 2003. The S.Art Galerie in Moscow is taking this opportunity
to link each of the 137 items in the constitution to a work of
art. Thirty-three art works by leading Russian artists, which were
previously displayed in the Gallery, can currently be seen on the
web. In many cases, the works of art are funny, provocative or
acerbic, and criticise the fact that the constitution is not sufficiently
implemented in practice.
The web site also provides background information about the project,
as well as the complete text of the constitution.
