National Research University “Higher School of Economics” (“HSE”) in Saint-Petersburg conducts the II Kotchoubey Readings “Private collections: objects, stories, emotions” under the patronage of the Kotchoubey family.
 
The conference is organized as a platform for a wide international exchange of experience and opinions in the field of creation, preservation and presentation of private collections. It is intended to provide a discussion of the most important concerns about the role of private collecting in the preservation of cultural heritage. Emphasis will be placed on the relationship of collectibles, related background and emotions that they cause to all those involved – collectors, patrons of art, spectators, as well as representatives of the professional museum community – custodians, managers, guides.
 
The event is focused on modern interactive formats that allow to combine vivid presentations of successful cases with project work in mixed groups of professionals of different levels and areas of activity that will provide multi-level project interaction to solve actual problems of the industry. Two days in the Kotchoubey’s mansion will be devoted to discussing possible ways and projects of practical international cooperation in the field of creation, preservation and representation of private collections.
