Forthcoming Publication on the First Russian Art Exhibition of 1922

The Russian Art & Culture Group would like to draw your attention to the forthcoming publication 100 Years On: Revisiting the First Russian Art Exhibition of 1922.

The editors and active members of the Russian Art & Culture Group, professor Isabel Wünsche and Miriam Leimer, compiled an interesting volume emphasizing on the Berlin First Russian Art Exhibition of 1922. Participants of last years International Conference in Berlin and other experts in the field provided intriguing material and insights.

We are looking forward to this book and already agree with the description of the publishing house Böhlau that “the combination of longer, thematic essays and short features, along with reproductions of newly identified works and a selection of unpublished archival materials make this book valuable to both a scholarly and a general readership.”

Of course, we will inform you once the volume is published in late 2022!

CFP, Season Greetings, and more

CFP, Season Greetings, and more

Dear friends and members of the Russian Art & Culture Group,

We hope everyone had lovely holidays and enjoyed them as much as possible, despite the pandemic-driven restrictions.

At the end of the year, we would like to draw your attention to a CFP for a forthcoming workshop on Revisiting Russian-speaking artistic (e)migration, 1900-1939. The deadline for submitting a proposal is January 15, 2022, and the workshop will be online on April 7-8, 2022. We are looking forward to an interesting workshop with our colleagues from the research project Relocating Modernism: Global Metropolises, Modern
Art and Exile (METROMOD) based at the LMU Munich.

Furthermore, as a little gift, we would like to share the link to a wonderful online contribution by Miriam Leimer. As one of the main organizers of this year’s conference on the First Russian Exhibition of 1922, she wrote an intriguing text on this very topic for decoder. Enjoy reading the Russian version or the German original!

Finally, we would like to wish you a joyous Holiday season and a happy and peaceful New Year! May the new options of remote events draw the community together but may there also be new opportunities to exchange our ideas and insights in person!

All the best from your Russian Art & Culture Group
