Contemporary Art in Russia



Contemporary Russian art is a great collection of society's symptoms, hidden relationships, and dymanics, which are not often visible on the very surface layer especially perpetuated by mass media. As well as questioning the established status quo and proposing new and different possibilities, contemporary art also creates distinct units of meaning, which enter the vocabulary and have repercussions on the whole culture. In this way contemporary art can be like a filter through which you can see the Russian history and culture in a totally different light. Below is a list of contemporary Russian artists who disrupt, shape, and cultivate the cultural context in Russia these days. We included the masters of the 90s as well as lesser known contemporary artists, which you perhaps never heard of.
