Publisher Comments:

Celebrated Russian philosopher Boris Groys and Georgian artist Andro Wekua were convened for this publication to compare and discuss their experiences of contemporary art: the Soviet era, the contemporary conditions of production and the concerns of a new generation of artists born in the 1970s. Wekua's two large installations Wait to Wait and Get Out of my Room serve as touchstones for these topics.
