Universal strategies of Central Asian Avant-garde

2011
Slide-show. 17’09’’

One of the important sources of contemporary art in Central Asia, is the Central Asian avant-garde in the 1920's. In the era of involvement of Turkestan’s feudal society in the modernization of the Soviet experiment, artists approved various methods to facilitate the intelligibility of their message to diverse segments of Central Asian society. When comparing the universalist strategies, to which artists adhered in the 1920's and 2000's, it is easy to see their isomorphism.
