Pushkin House Pavilion - 101st km – Further, Everywhere, is a temporary pavilion to celebrate Russian poetry in exile. 

  • The pavilion was developed with Pushkin House and Russian artist Alexander Brodsky, and celebrates the power of the word and the individual voice.

    The 101st km, a concept well known in Russia, refers to the distance that many poets and others were forced to maintain from major cities, often after returning from the labour camps – a kind of internal exile and attempt by the authorities to suppress them.

    The pavilion creates a refuge for these voices, which passers-by are invited to enter and experience.
