The two temporary exhibitions currently held at the museum are Rompiendo el silencio. El cine mudo en Rusia and Andrèi Tarkovsky. Maestro del Espacio. The cinema has for for decades been a way for attracting audiences, either indoctrination or for recreational purposes. Russian silent films have become universal icons over time. The second exhibition is about Andrèi Tarkovsky, one of the most influential Russian artists of the 20th century. He was the forerunner of innovative techniques in the cinema of the time, refining editing to make films more dynamic.
