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
