About

In the 1980s, Russia became infatuated with a space-centred utopian concept called Cosmism. Cosmism saw the vision and the political project of the communist revolution intertwine. 

Deeply influencing the Kabakov’s work The Man Who Flew into Space from his Apartment, Cosmism presented space as a realm of total freedom: a place where a person could escape from the hopelessness of the late-Soviet society.

With artist Aleksandra Mir, philosopher, activist and curator Maria Chehonadskih, and Dimitri Ozerkov, Director of “The Hermitage 20/21” Project for Contemporary Art at The State Hermitage Museum Moscow.
