Cosmic Shift

Wednesday 11th October 18:30 - 20:00 at London - Gower Street

Join us for the launch of the first anthology of Russian contemporary art writing outside of Russia: Cosmic Shift. The event features: a flash-exhibition of Pavel Pepperstein's works "Political Hallucinations", a film screening of "Krisis" by Dmitry Venkov and a Q&A with the book's editors Elena Zaysteva and Alex Anikina.

In Cosmic Shift, many of the country's most prominent artists, writers, philosophers, curators and historians come together to examine the region's various movements of contemporary art, culture and theory. With contributions from an array of international names, this definitive collection reveals a compelling portrait of a vast and complex culture: one built on a contradicting dialectic between the material and the ideal, and battling its own histories and ideologies.

Edited by Elena Zaysteva and Alex Anikina, contributors include: Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, whose exhibition NOT EVERYONE WILL BE TAKEN INTO THE FUTURE begins at Tate Modern on 18th October; Boris Groys, art critic, media theorist and philosopher; Bart de Baere, Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Antwerp; Pavel Pepperstein, prominent author, painter and filmmaker; and Anton Vidokle, founder of e-flux.

£6 tickets (£4 for students) are available online via Ticketscript and in store.
