Located in Dostoevskii's kind of dark and romantically dirty corner of St Petersburg, this gallery exhibits works by the famous 'Mitki' group of artists, named after its founder Mitia Shagin. Mitki's style is very recognisable and humorous. Besides their artistic features, Mitki have developed some of their own philosophical approaches to life, politics, and anything else they set their mind to. Mitki's philosophy and amusing observations are reflected in their books, offered for sale at the exhibition.
