Ilya Rabinovich is a Dutch-Moldovan photographer, internationally acclaimed for his unique photo projects. Rabinovich is based in Amsterdam, where he graduated from the Rijksakademie in 2000.
In 2008 he travelled to his birthplace Chişinău in Moldova to photograph the exhibitions in its national museums. Here he encountered a remarkable process, which led to the photographic project Museutopia. The country, formerly known as Moldavia, was annexed by the former USSR in 1940 and remained under Soviet rule till 1991. This period of its history has become distorted or totally erased in the national museums. Each museum orchestrates its own ideal image of Moldova.
