Afterall, in conjunction with the International Centre for Fine Art Research, presents a lecture by writer, curator and philosopher Boris Groys on the specific developments of contemporary art in Eastern Europe. Taking as a starting point 'Privatizations', an exhibition he curated in 2004, Groys will discuss the differing conditions in which the cultural discourse in the east and the west has developed.
In this discussion of Soviet collectivism and propaganda, Boris Groys considers Ilya Kabakov's 1988 installation The Man Who Flew into Space from His Apartment and its isolated dreamer, who attempts to fly alone in outer space.
