"Отпузыритесь из нуля!": "нулевые" и "пустотные тексты Александра Кондратова.
Apart from some characteristics of Kondratov’s poetics (“systematicity”, to a degree the use of principles of “serial art”), and his place in the tradition of the Russian Avant-garde (Futurists, Oberiu, Neo-Futurists), the author primarily discusses an important feature of Aleksandr Kondratov’s works – (the tendency towards) “zero” and “empty” texts. These are linked to Buddhist principles and to works by such predecessors as Vasilisk Gnedov and Ivan Ignatiev, and his contemporary Ry Nikonova. The article discusses and introduces some aspects of works by Kondratov published in the present issue, notably with regard to typographical particularities.
