Victor Tupitsyn - Vis-à-vision


In the Soviet era, Victor Tupitsyn had already begun making recordings in Moscow kitchens and studios of conversations with Russian conceptual artists. They were intended to be read in exhibitions. Today, Russian conceptualism is considered one of the most influential movements of the late twentieth century. Like many other Russian intellectuals and artists, Tupitsyn emigrated to New York in the 1970s, where he continued the conversations he had begun. In Vis-à-vision he emerges as an astute interview partner who knows how to build connections between the separate worlds. Featuring conversations with Ilya Kabakov, Boris Mikhailov, Komar & Melamid, Erik Bulatov, and the Collective Actions and Inspection Medical Hermeneutics, as well as many others.
