The Avant-Garde: Before and After

The Avant-Garde: Before and After

Palace Editions, St Petersburg, 2005.
288 pages; 428 coloured illustrations
Format: 23 x 29 cm; English and Russian

The publication accompanies the exhibition of the same name, held in Brussels within the framework of Europalia - Russia festival. The book contains articles by Russian and foreign experts, describing problems and evolution of Russian Avant-garde, its major artistic strategies and ideas, main forms and styles.

The peculiarity of the book is a view on Russian Avant-garde not as an all-sufficient phenomenon but as a process, developing in a certain context having causes and effects, its "before" and "after". Interspecific and interdisciplinary approach characterizes this publication: painting, graphic art, sculpture, assemblage, scenography, posters, photography, decorative and applied art, agitational art and architectural projects. The chronological bounds of the book are 1900-20s from Symbolism to Social Realism.

According to the conception of the catalogue, the album section is divided into two parts: Before and After; the main part consists of chapters, joining the material on the basis of conceptual, stylistic and specific typology. The book includes works from leading Russian collections, numerous provincial museums and private Russian and foreign collections. It contains almost all exhibited works, their legends and detailed annotations as well as short biographies of artists. Part of material is published for the first time.
