Book 4: The End of the Epoch

About the Book

 

The bright and tragic time of Perestroika radically influenced our art and brought a lot of new ideas and materials to it. We went beyond the image format into space and began to make installations and three-dimensional objects. Besides we also continued to do performances, not personal ones, but in a public environment.


This is the fourth volume.
