Title:
The Biopolitics of the Soviet Avant-Garde
Authors:
Penzin, Alezei
Abstract:
It would be no exaggeration to say that rather formalistic approaches to the art and culture of the first Soviet decade still dominate in post-Soviet academia. However, these approaches are substantially prescribed by later ideological concepts of “totalitarianism” and a radically negative view of the Soviet experience. The period’s artistic practices and achievements are seen outside the political and social experience of the victorious revolution, and the powerful impulses for transforming collective life that emanated from it. They are treated as discrete formal manifestations of the local modernist tradition, as acts of individual resistance, cunning maneuvers or forced compromises on the part of outstanding "lone creators” vis-à-vis the cultural policy of the Bolsheviks after they had come to power.
