Great Her­itage Bedrock for En­light­ened Fu­ture

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - FRONT PAGE - Tahir Mahkamov

Pre­sen­ta­tion af­ter pre­sen­ta­tion is the first thing that comes to mind when you try to re­al­ize what hap­pened on Novem­ber 28-29 in the frame­work of the In­ter­na­tional Media Fo­rum “Cross­roads of Times: Great Legacy of the Past Is the Ba­sis for En­light­ened Fu­ture”. The event in Tashkent was ded­i­cated to what is tak­ing place un­der the pro­ject «Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan».

Not only new media prod­ucts cre­ated within the frame­work of the pro­ject, but also new di­rec­tions of it are pre­sented. Ini­tially, it was im­ple­mented in two di­rec­tions - the pub­lish­ing of books and al­bums and the cre­ation of doc­u­men­tary films ded­i­cated to the ar­ti­facts of Uzbek­istan in the collections of the world. Now he has ac­quired new di­rec­tions aimed at fur­ther in-depth study and preser­va­tion of the coun­try's unique cul­tural her­itage. Read more in the re­ports of our cor­re­spon­dents.

At the open­ing of the media fo­rum, it was noted that to­day in the coun­try on the ini­tia­tive of the Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan Shavkat Mirziy­oyev, and within the frame­work of the Strat­egy of Ac­tions, largescale re­forms are be­ing im­ple­mented in all spheres of life, in­clud­ing a huge work to pre­serve, study and widely pop­u­lar­ize the cul­tural and spir­i­tual val­ues of the Uzbek peo­ple. The «Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan» pro­ject and the media fo­rum held are a vivid ex­am­ple of this mul­ti­faceted work, whose goal is also broad ed­u­ca­tion and ed­u­ca­tion of the younger gen­er­a­tion.


- The fo­rum is de­voted to a very im­por­tant, per­haps the most top­i­cal topic of the mod­ern world - the preser­va­tion of the spir­i­tual her­itage of the past, its mul­ti­pli­ca­tion, and, most im­por­tantly, the in­volve­ment of cur­rent and fu­ture gen­er­a­tions, - said one of the pro­ject co­or­di­na­tors, First Deputy Chair­man of the Se­nate of the Oliy Ma­jlis of the Repub­lic Uzbek­istan Sodik Safaev. - Mankind is go­ing through a dif­fi­cult pe­riod. The con­tra­dic­tions of the cul­tural and hu­man­i­tar­ian char­ac­ter are ex­ac­er­bated, the un­cer­tainty in many re­gions of the world is grow­ing, there are un­prece­dented threats to peace and sta­bil­ity re­lated to the spread of in­ter­na­tional ter­ror­ism. Com­pre­hen­sion of these pro­cesses leads to the idea that proven force­ful meth­ods of coun­ter­act­ing evil, vi­o­lence, in­tol­er­ance do not al­ways work. Speak­ing at the 72nd ses­sion of the UN Gen­eral As­sem­bly, the Pres­i­dent of our coun­try Shavkat Mirziy­oyev noted that of­ten ef­forts are re­duced to com­bat­ing the con­se­quences of chal­lenges, rather than their root causes.

Of­ten the root cause of any con­flict is ig­no­rance, not knowl­edge of his­tory, tra­di­tions of cul­ture and cus­toms of peo­ples. That is why to­day in many coun­tries of the world much at­ten­tion is paid to ed­u­ca­tion, study­ing his­tory. In Uzbek­istan, huge work is be­ing done in this di­rec­tion, sev­eral projects are be­ing im­ple­mented. One of them is «Cul­tural her­itage of Uzbek­istan in the meet­ings of the world». This pro­ject, ini­ti­ated and im­ple­mented by the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Elec­tronic Mass Media of Uzbek­istan (NAEMM), the Min­istry of Cul­ture, the UNESCO Of­fice in Uzbek­istan, the Re­gional Of­fice of the Kon­rad Ade­nauer Foun­da­tion for Cen­tral Asia, the Academy of Sciences of the Repub­lic, the Za­mon Press Info pub­lish­ing house, Uzbek­istan To­day news agency, Car­a­van-TV chan­nel, Se­vimli-TV In­ter­net chan­nel demon­strated that Uzbek­istan gave the world a huge num­ber of cul­tural val­ues. To­day, a large num­ber of ar­ti­facts con­sti­tute a sig­nif­i­cant part of the largest mu­seum and pri­vate collections in the world. And many peo­ple, es­pe­cially abroad, only now learn about Uzbek­istan's in­valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to the devel­op­ment of world civ­i­liza­tion. And in many re­spects it is fa­cil­i­tated by the media prod­ucts pro­duced within the frame­work of this in­ter­na­tional pro­ject, a con­fer­ence of sci­en­tists, at which is­sues of study­ing and pre­serv­ing cul­tural her­itage are dis­cussed.

Now our coun­try is go­ing through a new his­tor­i­cal stage, and it is felt in all spheres - in econ­omy, pol­icy, cul­ture, science, ed­u­ca­tion. In the era of glob­al­iza­tion, the preser­va­tion of na­tional iden­tity is the most ur­gent prob­lem, and of course the ques­tion arises: how to pre­serve it, what needs to be done for it The an­swer to this ques­tion was for­mu­lated, in­clud­ing our well-known Aca­demi­cian, Doc­tor of his­tor­i­cal sciences Ed­vard Rtve­ladze, not­ing that it is nec­es­sary to dis­cover, study, pre­serve and pro­mote the his­tor­i­cal and cul­tural her­itage.

Talk­ing about Uzbek­istan and its her­itage is very dif­fi­cult, be­cause any his­tor­i­cal pe­riod we did not take, he lit­er­ally stuffed with works of art, ex­hibits of a unique artis­tic cul­ture. Whichever re­gion of the coun­try we take, again pre­cisely this sit­u­a­tion, be­cause in any of them there are many works of art that tell both about the his­tory and about the peo­ple who lived in this re­gion and cre­ated these price­less works of art.

The «Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan» pro­ject is unique and has no ana­logues in other coun­tries. Uzbek­istan has al­ways been a cross­roads of dif­fer­ent peo­ples, cul­tures and tra­di­tions, and right now this pro­ject also gives ev­ery­one an op­por­tu­nity to unite, be­cause it unites dif­fer­ent his­tor­i­cal epochs, it is aimed not only at the past, but also in the fu­ture.

The unique­ness of the «Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan in the World's Collections» pro­ject is also the fact that for the first time a very large fac­tual base of our works is be­ing cre­ated, which are stored abroad. In the course of the work, for ex­am­ple, it be­came clear that even in Ger­many there are works that were col­lected by Ger­man col­lec­tors as early as the 19th cen­tury and were taken away from Uzbek­istan. These are ab­so­lutely unique works that char­ac­ter­ize prac­ti­cally all the stages of devel­op­ment of our na­tive land, from the an­cient times to the present days. And in many mu­se­ums, where the pro­ject was car­ried out, there was a sur­pris­ing at­ti­tude to Uzbek art. For ex­am­ple, in Stuttgart in the Lin­den Mu­seum, the head of the de­part­ment of Is­lamic art Dr. An­nette Kre­mer, per­fectly speaks the Uzbek lan­guage. And this is just an amaz­ing prece­dent of the deep­est re­spect and study of our art out­side of our coun­try.

It would like to em­pha­size that all media prod­ucts cre­ated within the frame­work of the pro­ject are do­nated to the hands of free read­ers, where they will find their read­ers. In par­tic­u­lar, within the frame­work of the held form, five copies of fac­sim­ile manuscripts were do­nated to the gov­ern­ment and the peo­ple of Uzbek­istan, and sets of new al­bums and doc­u­men­taries from the se­ries «Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan in the World’s Collections» - to the largest do­mes­tic and for­eign mu­se­ums and li­braries. Moreover, the pro­ject has an of­fi­cial web­site, which has free ac­cess to doc­u­men­tary films and in­for­ma­tion about books-al­bums. The events of the pro­ject and the congress are widely and ex­ten­sively cov­ered by do­mes­tic and for­eign media cov­er­ing a mul­ti­mil­lion au­di­ence in all cor­ners of the globe.


The in­ter­na­tional fo­rum be­gan with the pre­sen­ta­tion of a new se­ries of the media pro­ject «Cul­tural Her­itage: Mas­ter­pieces of Writ­ten Mon­u­ments of the East». The pro­ject will pub­lish the most valu­able and sig­nif­i­cant fac­sim­ile copies of the manuscripts for re­searchers, who for var­i­ous rea­sons were re­moved from the ter­ri­tory of the coun­try and are cur­rently stored in for­eign collections. Thus, a greater num­ber of sci­en­tists of the coun­try en­gaged in study­ing the his­tory of Uzbek­istan will have ac­cess to these unique doc­u­men­tary sources of his­tor­i­cal facts.

The In­sti­tute of Ori­en­tal Manuscripts of the Rus­sian Academy of Sciences was the first to re­spond to the ini­tia­tive of the au­thors of the pro­ject, pre­sent­ing for the pro­ject the manuscripts of the Ko­ran from Katta Lan­gar, Di­vani Husseyni, The Gar­den of Pu­rity, Te­mur's Code, and the Na­tional Li­brary of France, in which the man­u­script of the “Mi­ragehname” me­dieval writ­ten mon­u­ment is stored.

- The ex­change of cul­tural val­ues is the ba­sis of hu­man progress. It so hap­pened that the cul­tural her­itage of Uzbek­istan was rep­re­sented in the world in many mu­se­ums, and this is in­dica­tive, and is a marker of the in­ter­est of all mankind, - said Irina Popova, direc­tor of the In­sti­tute of Ori­en­tal Manuscripts of the Rus­sian Academy of Sciences. - Af­ter all, the cul­tural val­ues of Uzbek­istan were ac­quired and went to mu­se­ums all over the world ... The peo­ples who lived and pros­pered on the ter­ri­tory of Uzbek­istan left a very rich writ­ten her­itage and it was ac­quired by Rus­sian diplo­mats, trav­el­ers, re­searchers, and thanks to this the col­lec­tion of our mu­seum of Per­sian manuscripts is al­most 4 thou­sand units. It was very im­por­tant to present this ev­i­dence of such a high cul­tural level and pros­per­ity in the frame­work of this cul­tural pro­ject. To­day we give the sci­en­tific cen­ters of Uzbek­istan copies of four very re­mark­able manuscripts that rep­re­sent, first of an­tiq­uity, if we are talk­ing about the Ko­ran of Katta Lan­gar, since it is one of the old­est Ko­ran in the world, and three manuscripts that char­ac­ter­ize the hey­day of the hand­writ­ten cul­ture of the 19th cen­tury.

Fac­sim­ile copies of these price­less manuscripts were cre­ated in the widely known Aus­tralian pub­lish­ing house Muller & Schindler, which has ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in the pub­li­ca­tion of fac­sim­ile manuscripts.

«They are made on pa­per types that are as close to the orig­i­nal as pos­si­ble us­ing nat­u­ral golden in­clu­sions,» - says Alexan­der Wil­helm, vice pres­i­dent of the pub­lish­ing house. - We tried to do ev­ery­thing to make the copies vir­tu­ally in­dis­tin­guish­able from the vol­umes.

I want to stress once again that each edi­tion has a great his­tor­i­cal value. First of all, their con­tent is a well of use­ful his­tor­i­cal data. At the same time, each of them is an un­doubted mas­ter­piece, in­di­cat­ing a high level of cal­li­graphic and book art of its pe­riod.

The Ko­ran of Katta Lan­gar is one of the old­est and unique lists of the Ko­ran that have sur­vived to this day. This sa­cred book, stored on the banks of the Neva in the In­sti­tute of Ori­en­tal Manuscripts of the Rus­sian Academy of Sciences, is one of the rarest spec­i­mens of the world-fa­mous Ko­ran of Os­man.

The di­van of Sul­tan Hus­sein Baikara is one of the most mag­nif­i­cent ex­am­ples of the book art of the Te­murids era. This is a col­lec­tion of gazelles - po­ems writ­ten by the ruler of Herat, a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Te­murid dy­nasty - Sul­tan Hus­sein Mirzo Baikara. It was cre­ated in Herat at a time when the book art in Kho­rasan reached its high­est per­fec­tion.

«Rauzat-as-Safa» is a his­tor­i­cal trea­tise that tells the story of the prophet Muham­mad and the dy­nas­ties of the caliphs and kings. The au­thor of this his­tor­i­cal work is a vivid rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the school of court his­to­ri­ans of the Kho­rasan state - Mirkhond, who en­joyed the pro­tec­tion of Alisher Navoi.

«Mi­ragehname» - richly il­lus­trated man­u­script is a book ex­e­cuted in Ara­bic and Uighur graph­ics in the clas­si­cal Uzbek lan­guage - the Turk, au­thored by the great poet Mir Hay­dar Khorezmi. Of the 84 pages of the «Mi­ragehname», 70 are mag­nif­i­cent minia­tures. Here you can find minia­tures with scenes of the as­cen­sion of the Prophet Muham­mad to heaven, his night jour­ney from Mecca to Jerusalem and al-Aqsa Mosque. This unique man­u­script is kept in the Na­tional Li­brary of France.

«Te­mur's Code» was writ­ten dur­ing his life­time. This price­less his­tor­i­cal source of the Mid­dle Ages con­sists of two parts: «Au­to­bi­og­ra­phy», telling about the life of the great ruler, start­ing from the age of seven, and «Te­mur’s Code». In both parts of the work the pre­sen­ta­tion is con­ducted on behalf of the first per­son, that is, on behalf of Amir Te­mur. «Te­mur's Code» is a valu­able set of laws on the man­age­ment of the state and the army, the coun­try and so­ci­ety, from which we can see, on the ba­sis of which he cre­ated a cen­tral­ized con­trolled mighty state.


The second part of the fo­rum also con­sisted of pre­sen­ta­tions de­voted to new edi­tions of the fa­mous di­rec­tions of the «Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan» pro­ject. This is a book-al­bum and doc­u­men­tary video films ded­i­cated to Uzbek ar­ti­facts in fa­mous collections of the world.

The first five vol­umes were pre­sented in May 2017 at the in­ter­na­tional congress «Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan - the Way to Di­a­logue be­tween Peo­ples and Coun­tries.» They in­clude the books “The Col­lec­tion of the State Mu­seum of the East (Moscow, Rus­sia)”, “The Col­lec­tion of the Rus­sian Ethno­graphic Mu­seum (St. Peters­burg, Rus­sia)”, “The Col­lec­tion of the State Tretyakov Gallery (Moscow, Rus­sia)”, “Em­broi­dery and Car­pets of Uzbek­istan in For­eign Collections», «Works of Alisher Navoi in the Mas­ter­pieces of Book Art of the XV-XVI cen­turies. (From the Col­lec­tion of the Rus­sian Na­tional Li­brary, St. Peters­burg, Rus­sia)».

More than half a cen­tury ago, out­stand­ing cul­tural re­searchers of Cen­tral Asia Galina Pu­gachenkova and Lazar Rem­pel wrote with re­gret in the pref­ace to one of their books on the im­pos­si­bil­ity of pre­sent­ing in one pub­li­ca­tion «many re­mark­able cre­ations of an­cient art from the ter­ri­tory of Uzbek­istan» be­cause of their dis­per­sal in for­eign and do­mes­tic mu­seum vaults. «The con­sol­i­dated edi­tion of them is the work of the fu­ture,» they wrote then. Time, which dreamed of fa­mous sci­en­tists, in gen­eral, it has come. Ev­i­dence of this is the «Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan in the World's Collections» grandiose pro­ject.

Within the frame­work of the last media fo­rum five al­bums and doc­u­men­taries were pre­sented. The sixth vol­ume is de­voted to unique sam­ples of Uzbek mu­si­cal in­stru­ments and mu­si­cal notes that are in the collections of the Rus­sian Fed­er­a­tion. Three oth­ers - ar­ti­facts of Uzbek­istan, stored in the In­sti­tute of Ori­en­tal Manuscripts of the Rus­sian Academy of Sciences, works of art in the Her­mitage collections, the State His­tor­i­cal Mu­seum in Moscow and the All-Rus­sian Mu­seum of Dec­o­ra­tive and Ap­plied and Folk Art. The al­bum in­cluded an al­bum telling about the ex­po­si­tion of the I. Sav­it­sky State Mu­seum of Arts of Karakalpak­stan.

The pre­sen­ta­tion of the sixth vol­ume was unique, it took place in the frame­work of the evening of mu­si­cal art of Uzbek­istan. He was full of var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties. In par­tic­u­lar, for the first time the stu­dents were of­fered rare archival records of the In­sti­tute of Rus­sian Lit­er­a­ture (Pushkin House) of the Rus­sian Academy of Sciences in St. Peters­burg, which were recorded on the Edi­son phono­graph back in the 1920s. At the evening, fa­mous Uzbek mu­si­cians per­formed clas­si­cal folk­lore works of Uzbek­istan. The fa­mous Uzbek makoms, which are in­cluded by UNESCO in the list of mas­ter­pieces of the oral and in­tan­gi­ble cul­tural her­itage of mankind, were sounded.

But all of us are wait­ing for new books-al­bums and doc­u­men­taries. In 2018, the creative team of the pro­ject will con­tinue to work with Rus­sian mu­se­ums. In par­tic­u­lar, books are planned on collections of the State Mu­seum of the His­tory of Re­li­gion, the Rus­sian Na­tional Li­brary, the State Mu­seum of An­thro­pol­ogy and Ethnog­ra­phy named af­ter Peter the Great (Kun­stkam­era).

«Our mu­seum is un­usual, there are sev­eral such in the world and it is this that de­ter­mined the char­ac­ter of our collections - di­verse in their com­po­si­tion,» says the deputy direc­tor for sci­en­tific work of the Rus­sian State Mu­seum of the His­tory of Re­li­gion, Eka­te­rina Teryukova. - Par­tic­i­pa­tion in this pro­ject al­lowed us to look at our own col­lec­tion on the new side, be­cause, un­for­tu­nately, many items have not been prop­erly at­trib­uted to now. We do not know much about some of the items from our col­lec­tion, and it was the work within the pro­ject that prompted us to be­gin to iden­tify items re­lated to the cul­ture of Uzbek­istan, the re­li­gious and cul­tural tra­di­tions of the peo­ples who lived here in the Mid­dle Ages. In the course of the study, we found out that a few months af­ter the open­ing of our mu­seum (Novem­ber 15, 1932), one of the em­ploy­ees was sent to Uzbek­istan in or­der to col­lect things that later formed the ba­sis for the com­po­si­tion ded­i­cated to Is­lam. And there­fore, we can safely say that the ex­pe­di­tion ac­tiv­ity of our mu­seum begins with Uzbek­istan, and for us it was a pleas­ant dis­cov­ery. I hope that there will be many more such dis­cov­er­ies, be­cause we are just get­ting in­volved in the pro­ject, our al­bum is sched­uled for 2018, and we have time to un­der­stand and share this in­for­ma­tion with oth­ers.

The plans in­clude the prepa­ra­tion and pro­duc­tion of such books as “The Nu­mis­matic Col­lec­tion of the Bri­tish Mu­seum”, “The Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan in the Collections of the Lou­vre and Other Mu­se­ums in France”, “Alisher Navoi's Manuscripts in the Col­lec­tion of the Rus­sian Na­tional Li­brary”, “The Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan in the Manuscripts of the French Na­tional Li­brary», «Collections of the Mu­seum of Ja­pan». The pub­li­ca­tion of al­bums de­voted to the cul­tural her­itage of Uzbek­istan in the UK - in the Bodleian li­brary, Cam­bridge and Wind­sor, is planned.

- In 2018, there will be a unique al­bum that will tell about the Uzbek part of the ar­ti­facts in the nu­mis­matic col­lec­tion of the Bri­tish Mu­seum, - shared the pro­fes­sor of the Univer­sity of Hof­s­tra (USA) Alexan­der Nay­mark. - This mu­seum, tak­ing its ori­gins in the early 18th cen­tury with the col­lec­tion of medic and nat­u­ral­ist Sir Hans Sloane, has one of the largest nu­mis­matic collections in the world. To­day it stores about 9 thou­sand coins. Among other ex­hibits of this col­lec­tion are ar­ti­facts re­lated to Uzbek­istan. The nu­mis­matic col­lec­tion gives an­swers to such ques­tions as «What is money », «How are they made », «Where did the coinage come from » But most im­por­tantly - money can tell about peo­ple, his­tory and epochs.

I think that many new dis­cov­er­ies await the read­ers of the new vol­ume.

In the se­ries there will be an­other al­bum and a doc­u­men­tary ded­i­cated to the mu­se­ums of Uzbek­istan, its contents will be de­ter­mined by the col­lec­tion of the State Mu­seum of Arts of Uzbek­istan. Mu­seum direc­tor Vasila Fayzieva stressed that «for all the va­ri­ety of the Mu­seum's col­lec­tion, its foun­da­tion is the art of Uzbek­istan. The ex­po­si­tion presents the most valu­able ex­hibits of an­cient and early me­dieval art of Uzbek­istan. And these ex­hibits are of great in­ter­est to the au­di­ence of the mu­seum.»


Within the frame­work of the fo­rum, an­other in­ter­est­ing pre­sen­ta­tion took place a new di­rec­tion of the pro­ject, within which pro­ject par­tic­i­pants from dif­fer­ent coun­tries will ex­change ad­vanced tech­nolo­gies in pre­serv­ing ar­ti­facts. It was named «Cul­tural her­itage of Uzbek­istan: application of ad­vanced sci­en­tific tech­nolo­gies in the preser­va­tion of his­tor­i­cal ar­ti­facts and manuscripts». It is note­wor­thy that this pre­sen­ta­tion and the first re­ports within the frame­work of this pro­ject was made by Sergey Laptev, a Can­di­date of His­tor­i­cal Sciences, Spe­cial Re­search Fel­low of the MIHO mu­seum (Ja­pan).

He stressed that Uzbek­istan is lo­cated on the Great Silk Road and it is very in­ter­est­ing for sci­en­tists to ex­change views on how not only the ex­change of ob­jects of life and cul­ture was ex­changed along the Great Silk Road, but also the ex­change of ideas, as it is cur­rently hap­pen­ing. The “Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan in the World's Collections» pro­ject be­came such a plat­form.

One of these plat­forms is the cre­ation of books of al­bums and doc­u­men­taries. In par­tic­u­lar, Pro­fes­sor Laptev said that he was in­vited to be the cu­ra­tor of the al­bum on the mon­u­ments of the ma­te­rial cul­ture of Cen­tral Asia in the mu­se­ums of Ja­pan. Af­ter all, Ja­pan and Cen­tral Asia were con­nected since an­cient times. Al­ready in the VIII cen­tury there was an im­pe­rial trea­sury, in which in­tact things are stored, many of which, ob­vi­ously, are of Cen­tral Asian ori­gin. For ex­am­ple, ob­jects made of glass, glazes. And we are very in­ter­ested in know­ing how re­la­tions de­vel­oped on the Great Silk Road be­tween Ja­pan and the coun­tries of Cen­tral Asia.

The pro­fes­sor stressed that many ar­ti­facts orig­i­nat­ing from the ter­ri­tory of Uzbek­istan and stored in for­eign collections have not been stud­ied, this is only to be done. The process of study­ing re­quires the application of the most ad­vanced sci­en­tific tech­nolo­gies that sci­en­tists also need to ex­change. He also drew at­ten­tion to the fact that now this op­por­tu­nity has ap­peared in the new di­rec­tion of the «Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan in the World's Collections» pro­ject.

At the same time, the can­di­date of his­tor­i­cal sciences be­came the first sci­en­tist to share his re­search in the new di­rec­tion of the pro­ject. They were ded­i­cated to the study of glass and glaze ob­jects used in the dec­o­ra­tion of build­ings. The sci­en­tist also told about the spe­cial equip­ment avail­able in Ja­pan, which de­ter­mines the ori­gin of ob­jects from glass with the help of spe­cial anal­y­sis. In the fu­ture, these tech­nolo­gies are planned to be ap­plied in Uzbek­istan.

The au­thor and the head of the pro­ject «Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan in the World’s Collections», the hon­ored jour­nal­ist of Uzbek­istan Fir­davs Ab­dukha­likov, speak­ing at the fo­rum, promised that very soon the pro­ject will re­lease new media prod­ucts: books, al­bums, doc­u­men­taries, fac­sim­ile copies, and they will also be to be dis­cussed by the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity at sim­i­lar rep­re­sen­ta­tive con­gresses. In a word, we are look­ing for­ward for new meet­ings, new pre­sen­ta­tions
