The Moscow underground art scene of the 1970s and 1980s through the eyes of an insider.
Kate Fowle, Chief Curator of Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, will talk to George Kiesewalter to mark the publication of the artist’s documentary photo archive, which was donated to Garage Archive Collection last year. Kiesewalter’s album Insider is one of an occasional series of publications by Garage Museum of Contemporary Art which focuses on individual artists whose archives form part of Garage Archive Collection.
This is the first comprehensive survey of George Kiesewalter’s documentary archive photographs. While working as a member of Collective Actions group and the Avant-Garde Club, the artist was also a prolific photographer of the scene in which he participated.
Insider offers a rare glimpse into the Moscow underground art scene of the 1970s and 1980s.
