Ilja Kabakow, one of the most important contemporary Russian artists, and Boris Groys, art theoretician and philosopher, engage in a brilliant dialogue that draws upon their long and close relationship, their common intellectual experience as Russian emigrants, and their profound knowledge of their subject.
An artist and a theorist analyze modern art in the West and the social and cultural function of art in general with the restlessness and sensitivity of men to whom crossing frontiers is a way of life. Kabakow's large-scale installations are the focus of these reflections, making the conversation vivid and visually powerful.
