The 14th CuMMA by artists and historian Ilya Orlov is an article on what strategies for reflecting history should art have in its arsenals and how can art speak not merely about the political past but also about the past politically. The paper is based on A Revolutionary Museum After Ideology exhibition project that was realised together with Natasha Kraevskaya in 2014. In the paper Orlov talks about whether they managed to answer questions above and how they elaborated them during the artistic research process. Durind the spring semester 2015 Ilya Orlov also shared his views on the project with the same title in CuMMA Discourse Series lecture #25. If you really get carried away you can also read the other CuMMA Papers from here.
