The concept of "total installation" can be compared to the idea of Gesamtkunstwerk — universal works of art, synthesizing its various kinds. Kabakov installations involve complete immersion of the viewer in the environment, generated by a specially designed space in which play an important role not only paintings, texts and objects, but also the architecture, wall color, light, sound.

Emilia Kabakov, the artist: "the Hermitage and the Tretyakov gallery — is great museums not only in Russia but throughout the world. For any artist it's a dream and honour to exhibit here. For 30 years we have done more than 300 installations, but show them mostly abroad in ”foreign“ space. And for us as artists it is very important to see how they ”work“ in the Tretyakov gallery, in its context, where they are interpreted otherwise, and ”sound“, and even looks. Here they are different, people differently perceive and react to these works. At the Tate the visitors cried at the Hermitage — no, but reacted emotionally, the work was affected by their own experiences, evoked childhood memories. It is important that in such a difficult time museums — Tate, the Hermitage, the Tretyakov gallery — work together. Cultural connections — is that today helps us to be human".

Zelfira Tregulova, General Director of the Tretyakov gallery: "For the Tretyakov gallery this project is incredibly important — we hold the first exhibition of the world's most famous Russian artist and thus restoring historical justice. Using the works of the signs and peculiarities of Soviet life, Kabakov created and create works that don't RAID ”parochial“, and through the specific facts of their biography convey universal meanings, a story about life and suffering. This project finally loudly announced in Russia, — homage to the great artist, dedicated to his 85-летию".
