Yeltsin Center

Honoring the Constitution in Polyscreen Performance

Museums and Exhibits

In 2015, the Boris Yeltsin Presidential Center, in collaboration with Ralph Appelbaum Associates, commissioned Lorem Ipsum to create a media installation honoring the first post-Soviet constitution developed and signed during Boris Yeltsin’s presidency. We crafted a dynamic panorama featuring leading Russian politicians and celebrities reciting the constitution’s text, making it one of the museum’s most discussed media pieces.

This polyscreen presentation, comprising nine vertical screens, showcases a collective recital by over 40 personalities, each sharing a part of the constitution that holds particular significance for them.

The installation is part of the permanent exhibition at the Boris Yeltsin Presidential Center, whose mission is to preserve, study, and present Boris Yeltsin’s historical legacy, emphasizing his contributions to the formation of a democratic Russia. Renowned for its innovative and engaging exhibits, the Boris Yeltsin Presidential Center was awarded the prestigious Kenneth Hudson Award for Best Museum in Europe, recognizing its excellence and impact in the museum industry.
