MARSHRUTKA (2017)

»Marshrutka« (Маршрутка) are the most important component unit of public transport and very special for Tomsk. A big part of the drivers are also the owners of their busses and all they decorate them according to their personal taste – so the public bus becomes a very private space, a kind of mobile living room, embroidered with colorful carpets, curtains, flags, elaborate timepieces, holiday lights, customized seat covers – and music to taste oft he drivers: Jazz, Folk, Pop, classical music.
The busses are a place of concealment, a place of enjoyment of a not rationalised and sterile space, which for me the public transport in Germany and Western Europe is.
I went to final stops and met the drivers, spent a lot of time in these busses and learned to cherish these private, mobile spaces and the cordiality of the drivers.
A visual declaration of love to bus travel in Tomsk.
