A selection of books on architecture, Sergei Eisenstein’s memoirs, and other releases just out as part of Garage’s publishing program to be presented at the book festival on Red Square on June 1–6.
The Red Square book festival will be held for the fifth time this year in the heart of Moscow. For one week, books will occupy the entire territory of the square stretching from St. Basil’s Cathedral to the State Historical Museum. Garage’s stand will be located on the special “Museum Line” at GUM featuring Russia’s top museum institutions.
Together with Garage, Ad Marginem has for the first time published the complete Russian text of a biographical book by Sergei Eisenstein, a major film director and theorist, one of the most notable figures in the history of twentieth century art. The two-volume publication entitled Sergei Eisenstein. YO. Memoirs will be introduced as part of the festival’s business program at GUM Demonstration Hall on June 2. The book will be presented by its editor, the honored film historian Naum Kleyman.
Visitors to the festival will also have the opportunity to find out about other items in Russian and English published by Garage, including exhibition catalogues, academic monographs, and books on contemporary culture. At the core of the Museum’s selection will be books on architecture, including the guidebook on the Soviet modernist architecture of Almaty and the expanded edition of the modernist Moscow guidebook by Anna Bronovitskaya and Nikolay Malinin. Also available at Garage’s stand will be the bilingual Temporary Structures in Gorky Park prepared by Mariana Evstratova and Sergey Koluzakov—an illustrated volume tracing the history of the emergence and existence of temporary architectural constructions on the territory of the park, and Yuri Avvakumov’s Paper Architecture. An Anthology—the first comprehensive publication covering the history of paper architecture, a unique phenomenon of local history. The selection of English-language books will for the first time include the recently released The Agent in Love by Viktor Pivovarov.
