Politics, art and madness in Putin’s Russia

This course has no current classes. Please join the waiting list.

Russian artists have often deployed ostensibly ‘mad’ tactics to provoke public response, and provide commentary on social and political affairs. In turn, Russian authorities have turned to the label of madness to discredit, marginalise and institutionalise artists who dared to engage in such activities.

In this fascinating public talk Dr Iva Glisic will explore historical and contemporary examples of the interplay between politics, art and madness in Russia, providing insight into the political culture of a country that continues to play a significant role on the global stage.

This public talk will be held at The University Club of Western Australia.
