The lecture will demonstrate the inherent ability of Russian artists to develop alternative modes of existence in opposition to the powers that be.
Performance art in Russia has never been just for art’s sake. Instead, from the performative practices that were incorporated in unofficial Soviet art to the actionism of the 1990s to the radical political actions of recent times, Russian performance art has always sought to question hegemonic narratives, addressing the public directly.
Lecturer: Denis Stolyarov, PhD candidate, researcher of late Soviet art (Courtauld Institute of Art)
Drinks and light refreshments will be served.
Supported by the Academic Community, Global Media and Transnational Communications MA and the Media and Communications Department at Goldsmiths, University of London
