Remembrance and commemoration of traumatic histories are among the major issues of today’s international museological practice. By means of architectural and exhibition design, contemporary museums pose questions concerning history, memory, national identity, alternative perceptions of the past. The present essay poses theoretical questions concerning the impact of a national political discourse on the commemoration of difficult and contentious pasts, as well as the top-down instrumentalization of architectural and exhibition design in the realm of contemporary Russian museological practice.
