Lucky, lucky us! Our class got–not the golden ticket–but the golden bust of Lenin!
The New York-based Russian artist, Yevgeniy Fiks, will be joining us to talk about post-Soviet kitsch and Marxist-Leninist Ostalgie on March 27! He’ll be at Mac to deliver the keynote address of the annual Russian Studies conference the same day, which will be held in the Law Warschaw Gallery of the Art building neighboring our classroom in Neill, where he’ll also have an exhibition of his work up that week. Please check it out! Coming to his keynote and writing up a brief reaction to what he puts on view will earn you extra credit points.
