Тайное станет явным, но только без критики

Translator: Н. Ставрогина

The article responds to Mark Lipovetsky’s discussion of how the term “postmodernism” is used in contemporary Russian cultural and political discourse, calling for a broader, macro-historical perspective. As distinct from the more dialectical practice of “shimmering,” associated with Moscow conceptualism, the radical stiobpracticed by Timur Novikov’s New Academy is fundamentally post-critical, reflecting a global cultural trend that accompanied the neoliberal revolution of 1989—91. It is this avant-garde moment — the last avant-garde — that ushered in the shift in thinking Lipovetsky describes, a shift that begins in late/post-Soviet art, far in advance of similar tendencies now observable in western culture.
