We would like to invite you to the launch of PLACE Issue 55 “Project Russia” and the Video Premiere of “Beautiful Chaos”, a film by Modest Department. The event will take place at Bar Babette, Karl-Marx-Allee 36 on the 20th of January, doors open at 9 PM presented by Carhartt WIP and Converse.

This Project has been a unique and exciting journey since the first time we got in touch with the influential people in Russian skateboarding. We went on tour together, we visited them at their homes in Moscow and traveled to Sochi. Our photographer and friend Alexey Lapin, who graciously hosted us in Moscow and curated this issue, said it perfectly: “It’s beautiful chaos.”

With that said we invite you to enjoy all that this Russian evening has to offer.

Contributors PLACE Issue 55:

Alexey Lapin, Barabakaa, Dan Zvereff, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Kirill Korobkov and Stas Provotorov
