Since the beginning of his career in the 1950s, Russian artist Erik Bulatov (born 1933) has investigated the potential of painting as social commentary. A founder of the school of Moscow Conceptualism alongside Ilya Kabakov, Collective Actions and Komar & Melamid, among others, Bulatov developed what has been described as conceptual painting, using text and image to explore spatial preoccupations that mirror his understanding of social relations. This volume follows the making of the artist's largest work to date: a 30-foot-high monumental diptych made in his trademark graphic style, reminiscent of the poet Vladimir Mayakovsky's advertising posters from the 1920s. Introducing an innovative assessment of Bulatov's oeuvre, this richly illustrated book includes an essay by Snejana Krasteva exploring his use of monumental scale, an interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist and several texts by the artist which are translated to English for the first time.

Since 2001, Rashid Johnson (born 1977) has risen to international attention with his powerfully visual statements on contemporary culture. Working across painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video and performance, the artist has charted a trajectory that offers fresh readings of art history, social history, psychology and literature. Rashid Johnson: New Work follows the making of the artist's largest work to date: an immersive, living eco-system where fact, fiction, history and mythology converge. Described by the artist as a "brain" that prioritizes poetic rather than logical reason, the work offers unexpected associations between objects, video and sound, that have become untethered from their cultural roots, to provide nuanced readings on cliches of class, nation and race. The first book to follow the development of Johnson's sculptural and installation works, Rashid Johnson: New Work includes an interview with the artist by Kate Fowle and an extensive essay, also by Fowle, which investigates Johnson's influences and references. The New Work series examines in depth the making of a large-scale work, focusing on methods of research and production to provide new perspectives on the practice of a mid-career or established artist whose work resonates across cultures.

From the winner of the National Book Award and the National Books Critics’ Circle Award—and one of the most original thinkers of our time—“Andrew Solomon’s magisterial Far and Away collects a quarter-century of soul-shaking essays” (Vanity Fair). Far and Away chronicles Andrew Solomon’s writings about places undergoing seismic shifts—political, cultural, and spiritual. From his stint on the barricades in Moscow in 1991, when he joined artists in resisting the coup whose failure ended the Soviet Union, his 2002 account of the rebirth of culture in Afghanistan following the fall of the Taliban, his insightful appraisal of a Myanmar seeped in contradictions as it slowly, fitfully pushes toward freedom, and many other stories of profound upheaval, this book provides a unique window onto the very idea of social change. With his signature brilliance and compassion, Solomon demonstrates both how history is altered by individuals, and how personal identities are altered when governments alter. A journalist and essayist of remarkable perception and prescience, Solomon captures the essence of these cultures. Ranging across seven continents and twenty-five years, these “meaty dispatches…are brilliant geopolitical travelogues that also comprise a very personal and reflective resume of the National Book Award winner’s globe-trotting adventures” (Elle). Far and Away takes a magnificent journey into the heart of extraordinarily diverse experiences: “You will not only know the world better after having seen it through Solomon’s eyes, you will also care about it more” (Elizabeth Gilbert).

Russia has undergone an amazing cultural and political transformation over the past forty years. How has its rapidly changing social landscape shaped its art? And how does art effect social and cultural change within Russia? This generously illustrated volume explores these questions by presenting a broad but balanced selection of work by eighty Russian artists working from the 1970s to the present day. It features many newcomers, including Alexei Kallima, Kerim Ragimov and Olga Chernysheva alongside such well-established names as Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Eric Bulatov, Boris Mikhailov and AES+F. With more than 600 colour illustrations, perceptive interviews, in-depth profiles and three essays by leading scholars and collectors, Frozen Dreams will be an essential guide to a hitherto neglected area and an up-to-the-minute cultural portrait of an exciting artistic arena.

Exhibit Russia is the first publication to reveal how the Russian art scene connected to the rest of the world during the turbulent decade following the adoption of the economic reforms known as perestroika. Focusing on those major group exhibitions and events which jettisoned Russian artists to international attention, or introduced Russian publics to Western art stars, the book provides readers with a unique perspective into the dawning of the global art world. First-hand accounts from leading curators, artists and writers of the time describe the stories behind each exhibition, which are illustrated through rare installation views and archival material. These are accompanied by reprinted articles from magazines, including Flash Art, Art in America and Moscow Art Magazine. The book concludes with a chronology, in which exhibitions are listed in relation to the key historical moments of the decade. Featured artists, curators and critics include: Jan Aman, Joseph Backstein, Veronika Bode, Shaun Caley, Ekaterina Degot, Sandra Frimmel, Jamey Gambrell, Vladimir Gorainov, Michael Govan, Boris Groys, Alanna Heiss, Georgy Litichevsky, Natalia Nikitina, Simon de Pury, David Ross, Tair Salakhov, Aidan Salakhova, Lisa Schmitz, Sergei Serp, Olga Sviblova, Zelfira Tregulova, Margarita Tupitsyn and Amei Wallach.

This book is the generously illustrated, lavishly documented, critically narrated story of one of the most significant art collectives of the late twentieth century. In 1984, three groups of artists in post-Tito Yugoslavia -- the music and multimedia group Laibach, the visual arts group Irwin, and the theater group Scipion Nasice Sisters Theater -- came together to form the Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK) art collective. Adopting the symbols, codes, appearances, and discourses of fascism, nationalism, state power, socialist-realist, and avant-garde art, and pushing the strategies of overidentification and subversive affirmation to their limits, NSK exposed the common foundations of various regimes, systems, and ideologies, while affirming that "art and totalitarianism are not mutually exclusive." Employing music, video, film, exhibitions, writing, graphic design, architecture, theater, and public relations to probe the aesthetic possibilities of declining socialism and proliferating capitalism, NSK introduced an idiosyncratic version of postmodernism (the Retro-Avant-Garde) into the globalizing cultural sphere. Combining primary documents, period artifacts, critical essays, and contextual notes, NSK from Kapital to Capital documents NSK's collective practice during the final decade of Yugoslavia--from the first (and banned) Laibach concert (1980) in a small proletarian mining town in Slovenia to the series of projects launched by individual NSK groups entitled Kapital (1991-92). This illuminating chronicle of NSK's work and its reception is produced in conjunction with the first major museum exhibition devoted to NSK. Designed by Novi Kolektivizem (New Collectivism), the graphic design section of NSK, the cover of each individual copy of the book is printed with a custom detail; no two covers exactly are the same.
