“In 2007 I stumbled accidentally into Cement Town, a small suburb of the East Siberian industrial city Angarsk. In the centre of Angarsk they call Cement Town a ‘no go’ area. ‘’ they say of the suburb’s residents.

“Nothing more than junkies and thugs!”

Several times I went to cultural center Druzhba, a dilapidated building in Cement Town that once must have been a great and sparkling Soviet palace. This girl was sitting next to the dance floor during the Friday night disco, while DJ Artiom played deafening electro-house for a crowd of 30 residents.”

At the end of 2016, local media broadcasted plans to demolish cultural center Druzhba. According residents the building is a danger to children, after it was looted and stood on fire several times in recent years.
