His own story.


It was the early 1980s when Jarosław Jurevič Mogutin, born in 1974, made the first decision that would change his life: to leave the Siberian province of Kemerovo where he grew up to reach Moscow, hoping to get in touch with a more open generation and more inclusive as he began earning a living as a reporter for independent print and radio news organizations. After that, his second crucial choice came when he was already twenty-one, and it coincided with the firm resolution not to be stopped by the accusations that the Soviet government is making: open and deliberate contempt for generally accepted moral norms, hooliganism characterized from malice, extreme cynicism and insolence, propaganda of brutal violence.

Some of Mogutin’s works were exhibited in the double exhibition AllTogether, curated by Tom of Finland Foundation and presented by Diesel, at Studio Cannaregio in Venice or at The Community Center in Paris, while his “Stock Boyz” series will be exhibited at the Eisenherz Berlin until 31st July and several of his shots and videos will remain at the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart until 11th September, and then move to the UNZUCHT in Berlin until 18th September.
