Talk with Ilya Orlov
A Revolutionary Museum After Ideology
20th of May 2015
Seminar room 2055, Hämeentie 135 C
The recent transition in post-Soviet society from the political apathy of the last years to aggressive intolerance and nationalist mobilization of 2014 rises a new question for artists about their role in the society. How to re-politicize art in these new conditions? How can art speak no barely on political past, but on past politically? During the talk we will speak of the project A Revolutionary Museum After Ideology, that was made in the framework of Manifesta 10 Public program curated by Joanna Warsza, of its background, of the political and ethical discussions that surrounded the preparation of the project, and also of why an artist needs an awareness of the methods of historical studies and how this methods could be instrumentalized in artistic work.
