Cosmic Shift

Russian Contemporary Art Writing


Edited by Elena Zaytseva and Alex Anikina

Foreword by Bart De Baere


In this, the first anthology of Russian contemporary art writing to be published outside Russia, many of the country’s most prominent contemporary artists, writers, philosophers, curators and historians come together to examine the region’s various movements of contemporary art, culture, and theory, from communism, cosmism and conceptualism to past and future futures.

With contributions from Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Andrey Monastyrsky, Boris Groys, Bart De Baere, Pavel Pepperstein, Dmitri Prigov, Anton Vidokle, Arseny Zhilyaev amongst many others, this definitive collection reveals a compelling portrait of a vast and complex nation built on a contradicting dialectic between the material and the ideal and a culture battling its own histories and ideologies.

Also featured are Alex Anikina, Joseph Backstein, Alexander Brener, Ilya Budraitskis, Maria Chekhonadskih, Olga Chernysheva, Keti Chukhrov, Gluklya, Yevgeny Granilshchikov, Dmitry Gutov, Maria Kapajeva, Andrei Kuzkin, Artemy Magun, Bogdan Mamonov, Gleb Napreenko, Ivan Novikov, Anatoly Osmolovsky, Maria Sumnina, Oxana Timofeeva, Dmitry Venkov, Dmitry Vilensky, Vadim Zakharov and Elena Zaytseva.
