Abstract:

The article reveals the idea, concept and implementation of the exhibition project “Esenin. Live the Way the Star Leads You...” (2020–2021) in the State Museum of the History of Russian Literature named after V. I. Dahl. The museum experience, gained over several decades in the creation of expositions and exhibitions dedicated to the poet, was comprehended and generalized during its preparation. The museum space presents a new aesthetic image of Esenin, corresponding to the needs of the cultural society of the 21th century. The exhibition text is based on the conceptual idea of the “star” hero — a person of a special type of consciousness that has a connection with the Universe. The subjects and the expressive design solution reconfigure the usual optics of the spectator’s perception of the poet’s personality and work and reveal meanings that were not previously revealed or read.

Keywords: S. A. Esenin, exhibition project, concept of the museum exhibition, the State Museum of the History of Russian Literature named after V. I. Dahl, cultural communication, architecture and exhibition design, multimedia resources, “the star map of literature”, asteroid 2576.
