DESCRIPTION

Anatoly Osmolovsky is one of the key figures in post-Soviet Russian art and has contributed to art strategies like actionism, autonomous art, and “non-specatacular art.” Apart from his solo projects, he has been at the forefront of many important collective initiatives, such as Neceziudik project, Nongovernmental Control Mission, Radek, and BAZA institute. But is there a general line, an organizing principle behind his versatile projects?
