The project МАТЕМАТИКА, through a land of mathematics tells stories of ten Russian women from nine different cities who contribute, directly or indirectly, to the research in mathematics. Each one of them, in her unique way, is engaged into mathematics.
Russia is a very special place for mathematics, and this project is an attempt to sketch an impression of modern Russian mathematics in many of its different aspects.
The choice of the 10 heroines reflects the will to learn and share the stories of women, their fights and their dreams, to celebrate them, be impressed and inspired.
In order to put this project in place, a Russian mathematician (and interviewer) and a French photographer, Olga and Bertrand, are travelling through Russia from Khabarovsk to Saint Petersburg, in order to meet the heroines of МАТЕМАТИКА. From their discussions and impressions, an exhibition and a book will be created.
The exhibition will be premiered at the World Meeting for Women in Mathematics, (WM)² on the 5th July 2022. This meeting is a satellite event of the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM2022) that will take place in Saint Petersburg.
