5 Questions with Olga Kopenkina

In this 5 Questions interview, Olga Kopenkina describes her curatorial practice, which moves away from grand historical narratives toward specific, national histories producing intersectionalities that she feels are missing in art history today. She advocates for a study of Russian art, including the historical avant-garde, that goes beyond aesthetics to include the literature and politics of the corresponding period. Considering contemporary Russian art, she is compelled by artists, who "entertain lost avant-garde utopias and unrealized Soviet dreams" in their works.
