Editorial Reviews

Review

A remarkable volume, The Russian Avant-Garde and Radical Modernism brings together the most significant movements and figures in Russian experimental art, cinema, and literature of the early twentieth century (both pre-Soviet and Soviet) and presents them in commentary by leading scholars in the field. The result is a vibrant introduction to Russian aesthetic thought of the last century, as well as to cutting-edge assessments of its meaning. A volume like this has long been overdue. It will be enormously useful to students of Russian culture in the modern era as well as anyone seeking a better understanding of modernism in general an artistic movement to which Russian artists made particularly brilliant contributions. --Thomas Seifrid, University of Southern California

Stimulating and comprehensive, gracefully written, filled with fascinating details and counterintuitive conclusions, this essential introduction to the Russian Avant-Garde offers a convincing and perceptive analysis of the Russian radical aesthetic thought and brings valuable new light to the most important developments in twentieth-century art. In the age of skepticism, repetition, and nostalgia for olden time dynamism a reading of these texts brings back a sense of freshness, power and fearlessness of Russian art in its heyday. --Evgeny Dobrenko, University of Sheffield
