Presentation of the project If our soup can could speak ... Mikhail Lifshitz and the Soviet Sixties by Dmitry Gutov and David Riff

13 October 2015
19:00–21:00

DESCRIPTION

Dmitry Gutov and David Riff introduce If our soup can could speak … Mikhail Lifshitz and the Soviet Sixties — their ongoing live Field Research project at Garage: an imaginative journey into the Soviet Sixties through the eyes of the Marxist aesthetic philosopher Mikhail Lifshitz (1905–1983). Gutov and Riff will contextualize this towering, perpetually untimely figure, elucidating both the historical context of his work in Soviet philosophy and cultural politics, and its broader meaning to contemporary culture and its most urgent problems. A special screening and discussion of the project's first webisode will be followed by insights into some of the motivations and research methods of the project.
