The exhibition project is devoted to the 40th anniversary since the foundation stone was laid in the Komsomolsky MZhK (Molodyozhny Zhiloy Kompleks — Youth Residential Estate) in Sverdlovsk. The MZhK movement developed in the late Soviet Union and combined the initiative of young people to build multi-apartment housing with their own hands and an experiment to form a community of like-minded people at the place of residence. In Ekaterinburg, several MZhKs operated, and the very first of them, MZhK "Komsomolskiy" (hereinafter MZhK-1), was the largest in the USSR and served as an example of a social experiment in housing construction. The "MZhK-1980" project includes two exhibitions — "What Makes Us Better" and "A Place on Earth", as well as a public and children's program, theater performances and art interventions, guided tours, and the book publication.
