STOöP No. 5

When: Thursday, September 25, 6-9 PM

Where: Tyler Campus, Penrose Rooms 304 and 306

Bring Art! (and food and drink…)

As a continuation of the last STOöP conversation, and in preparation of a more elaborate curatorial STOöP event coming to you in October, we invite individuals to bring examples of their work for a conversation about art’s relation to, well, other forms of cultural production, audience, context, history, in short, the Zeitgeist at large.

(We are re-distributing the attached texts/links to provide a historical example of a very particular extreme of such a relation between art and life as well as some contemporary reactions to that relation.)

Some readings to guide the evening:


Three artist manifestos from the beginning of the Soviet experiment

Bogdanov, Tatlin, FwOC

**Peter Scheldjahl Village Voice review of Rodchenko at MoMA


**review from World Socialist Web of the same exhibition

For those unfamiliar with his work, a nice page of Rodchenko’s photography


A view from the other side of the rabbit hole:

**NY Times obituary of Russian Novelist Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
