Summary

The Hermitage Museum is one of the world's great institutions. Founded by Catherine the Great in 1764, it celebrates its 250th anniversary in 2014. Granted special access, this project gets behind the closed doors of the museum to interview a wide range of those who work there: directors, curators, restorers, room attendants, cleaners, photographers, guides etc. Members of the public will also be interviewed, thus creating a 'snapshot' of the life of an extraordinary cultural phenomenon, in a single year.

Combined with remarkable photographs by Hermitage photographer Yuri Molodkovets, of life behind the scenes, Hermitage Voices is part documentary, part art/photographic book, as well as offering a unique insight into the contemporary world of the museum and its extraordinary history, during imperial and communist rule. Accompanying interviews reveal much about life in Russia in 2014.
