The Center for Theoretical Inquiry in the Humanities presents:
A SEMINAR WITH BORIS GROYS
Saturday, April 12, 2014
Distinguished Alumni Room, Indiana Memorial Union
Boris Groys (Aesthetics and Media Theory, University of Arts & Design, Karlsruhe; Global Distinguished Professor, New York University) is among the most renowned theorists of art and media working today. He made his mark with his pioneering study The Total Art of Stalinism: Avant-Garde, Aesthetic Dictatorship, and Beyond (1992), which prompted a thorough re-evaluation of the relationship of modernism and socialist realism. He has followed suit with a large number of publications on a vast range of topics in aesthetics, philosophy, and art history. Among his books published in English are Ilya Kabakov: The Man Who Flew into Space from his Apartment (2006), Art Power (2008), The Communist Postscript (2010), and Introduction to Anti-Philosophy (2012). He currently holds the position of Global Distinguished Professor at New York University.
Groys will also give a lecture the previous afternoon, Friday, April 11, at 4:00 pm, in the Oak Room of the IMU.
