At the beginning of the 21st century, Russia is experiencing the birth of a radical art scene. "Laboratories of free artists", clubs, internet cafés and galleries are emerging between prefab high-rises, slums and the turreted, fortress-like palaces of the nouveau riche. Unburdened by old ideologies and metaphysical obsessions, artists in the former Soviet culture houses have been developing new strategies, with a distinct leaning towards the staging of the self, performance art and the new media. This book is meant as an introduction to the young art scene in Russia. It is the first publication to look beyond the two main cities Moscow and St. Petersburg, also including artists from other parts of Russia. The works of the young artists presented here - paintings, objects, installations, photographs and media works - were selected by Russian curators from Ekaterinburg, Kaliningrad, Nizhny Novgorod, Novosibirsk, Vladivostok and a number of other cities. The book grants fascinating insights into the Russian artist generation designated "P like Pepsi" by cult author Pelewin - the first generation to grow up without censorship and state regimentation and thus able to seek its very own artistic expression.
