The series tells about the death of museum. There are too few places in Minsk where at least sometimes contemporary art is presented. The author counted only four in the period of the series creation (May 2009). The artist, using photomontage, set fire to the Academy of Arts, destroyed the Palace of Arts, closed the gallery Underground and the Museum of Modern Art. The series turned out too small due to lack of exhibition places in the city. The artist wanted to draw attention to this problem. It is interesting to note that after the establishment of the series the art gallery Underground was really closed, and in the Palace of  Arts the ceiling was demolished (for repairs).
