22-23 October 2021, Thessaloniki, Greece
Organization: MOMus Museum of Modern Art – Costakis Collection
Conference Management: SYMVOLI I Conference and Cultural management
The fourth International Khardzhiev conference will focus on the way collectors mediate and foster the continuity, legacy and lineage of Russian modernist art forms. It will look into the subject of the new archival theories and if they can broaden or change the perspective on Soviet collections of modernist art. Lastly, it will examine how the official and unofficial collecting practices interacted in the various historical timeframes in the Soviet Union, with a special reference to the issue of rehabilitation of the unofficial art when such private collections transition to public.
