Surfing the Jagged Shards of Communism: Jennifer Barth comments on Boris Groys at the ICA

In the first of Jennifer Barth’s reports as TCS Website Researcher, she discusses the recent talk given by Boris Groys in London.

Groys is perhaps most famous among Anglophones for his work on Russian avant-garde art, the ‘post-communist condition’ and the relationship between art and power. A special section on Boris Groys, edited by Matthias Benzer and Hannah Abdullah, will be published in TCS in early 2011.
