Priamukhino Readings
July 27-28, 2002
Priamukhino, Tver region, Russia

On July 27-28 in the village of Priamukhino, estate of Bakunin family,
second Priamukhino readings will be held. Organizers of Priamukhino
readings consider them to be continuation of the cause, as well as a
tribute to Natalya Pirumova, well-known Russian historian, who organized
Bakunin readings in 1994 (and numerous other events devoted to Russian
anarchist and revolutionary Mikhail Bakunin).

Conference organizers, Bakunin Fund, invite those studying the history
of Praiamukhino and Tver region, history of Bakunin family and
activities and ideas of its most prominent member, Mikhail Bakunin, to
participate in this year¹s and future Priamukhino readings, which we
hope will be regular. We also invite those involved in restoration
projects similar to the one currently carried out in Priamukhino by
Bakunin Find, journalists, writers and all those interested to come and
share their ideas and experience.

In the XIXth century Bakunin's estate in Priamukhino was notorious for
its harmonious atmosphere. However, now Priamukhino, which was known
because of both its dwellers and its guests, which included Belinsky,
Stankevich, Turgenev, Gorky and Tolstoy, is in ruins and desperate
state. Bakunin Fund, which was established for the purpose of
preservation and restoration of Priamukhino, tries to solve a double
task of restoring the buildings and the park of Priamukhino and the
atmosphere of cultural and spiritual quest, which characterized it in
the past.

The main topics, which will be discussed at the readings, will include
the history of Priamukhino and Bakunin family, their role in Russian
history, problems of restoration of historical monuments, life and ideas
of Mikhail Bakunin, anarchist ideas of the past and present.

Materials of last year's Primaukhino readings are available in Russian
at the website of the Bakunin Fund bakunin-fund.da.ru. The
website also contains some reports about the restoration works in
Priamukhino, photos of the place, etc. Expansion of the Priamukhino
school museum devoted to the history of Priamukhino and Mikhail Bakunin
is now under way.

You can also send your reports on the topics mentioned above for
translation and publication in Russian. Articles (preferably in English,
but also in other languages) can be sent to tsovma-AT-online.ru.

During the last decade of July and first decade of August a volunteer
camp is organized in Primaikhino for the purpose of restoring the house
of Bakunin and the park. Volunteer work is carried out by anarchists
predominantly, but all good natured folks are welcome. Please, note that
conditions are Spartan and a sleeping bag, working clothes and things
such as plates, cups, forks are required. All inquiries can be made to
